Cancer is a complex and diverse group of diseases characterized by the abnormal growth and proliferation of cells. It is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, impacting millions of lives each year. Cancer can affect various organs and tissues in the body, and its development is often influenced by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.
Cancer can manifest in numerous forms, including breast cancer, lung cancer, bucco facial cancer, prostate cancer, and many others. Each type of cancer has its own unique characteristics, growth patterns, and treatment options.
In the context of cancer, Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in supporting patients throughout their journey, from diagnosis to survivorship. Physiotherapy is vital in addressing various complications that can arise in cancer patients like lymphoedema, range of motion limitations, muscle weakness and deconditioning, fatigue, joint pains, respiratory complications, balance and gait disturbances, and also the postural abnormalities.
Physiotherapy can contribute to overall health and well-being, which may indirectly reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancers.
At Mission Health Physiotherapy Centre, we understand the unique challenges faced by individuals undergoing cancer treatment and the importance of comprehensive rehabilitation in their recovery journey. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists is committed to providing compassionate and evidence-based cancer rehabilitation services to support our patients in achieving the best possible outcomes.
