Lymphoedema may arise, especially after cancer surgery, because the lymphatic vessels – lymph nodes – have been damaged or were removed during a mastectomy or lumpectomy, or were damaged during radiotherapy.

Physiotherapy treatment can include exercise programs, compression bandaging, low level laser therapy and even manual lymphatic drainage. An important phase of recovery is being educated in the self management of this condition to relieve pain and discomfort.

Our physiotherapist is a certified Pinc & Steel physiotherapist and specialises in pre and post cancer rehabilitation treatments to get you back on the road to recovery.
