Breast Health - Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy plays a significant role in maintaining upper extremity mobility as well as the prevention and treatment of a condition called lymphedema. Lymphedema is a fluid buildup that can occur when lymph nodes are removed or damaged as a result of surgery.

With the breast center team approach, more patients are referred to physical therapy soon after surgery before a problem develops. Breast cancer patients are given activity guidelines and a list of exercises to do at home to prevent problems such as lymphedema or frozen shoulder from occurring.

We have 3 certified lymphedema therapists on our staff that provides specific therapy to meet each patient’s individual needs.
