The oncology physiotherapy is specifically aimed at the various aspects of the illness. Thanks to an understanding of the illness, the medical treatments and their consequences, the therapist can help relieve you of your complaints. The therapist supports and guides you in a psychosocial sense as well.
These are the four different stages of cancer for which the physiotherapist will offer guidance:
Treatment is aimed at combating cancer. The therapist will help to limit and counteract the loss in physical condition and will relieve the tension complaints.
In this stage, it is all about recovering mobility, quality of life and gaining control again of daily activities. With a special training programme we will enhance the patient's physical condition and we will make sure that they can handle all daily activities again through a balanced set of exercises. After a successful treatment and the patient has been healed, there can be remaining issues such as mobility problems or fatigue. This requires good after-care.
