Cancer treatment can leave you feeling weak, exhausted, with a compromised immune system. No matter what type of cancer you are battling, or where you are in your treatment, MD Neuro-Rehab & Wellness Center in Pikesville can provide the support you need.
Physical therapists are trained experts in body movement and function. They can show you how to do specific exercises that will help you to regain strength and move better after treatment.
Some conditions that physical therapy can help with according to Cure Today are:
- “Peripheral neuropathy: Oftentimes, cancer survivors experience peripheral neuropathy, which is abnormal nerve function that can be experienced as pain, numbness and tingling. Physical therapy can help to improve nerve function or compensate for nerve dysfunction.
- Lymphedema: Effective lymphedema management is accomplished through manual lymph drainage, range of motion exercises, aerobic exercise, and lymphatic bandaging.”
When you arrive for your initial appointment, our physical therapist will conduct a comprehensive exam to determine the best course of treatment for your needs.
From there, an individualized treatment plan will be designed especially for you, including targeted stretches, exercises, and other therapeutic modalities our physical therapist may recommend.
Your therapist may use heat, cold, massage, pressure, and/or exercise to help you feel better. Therapeutic massage at MD Neuro-Rehab & Wellness Center can help to ease and prevent muscle strain, tightness, and related pain symptoms that may develop as a result of cancer treatments.
Some of the reported benefits of massage therapy include:
- Increased circulation
- Less build up of lymph
- Less muscle stiffness and pain
- Reduced scar tissue
- Decreased anxiety
