Post Mastectomy Rehabilitation

Why start a post mastectomy rehabilitation program? There are several clearly defined goals post mastectomy:

  • Prevention of any secondary complications following surgery
  • How to safely perform specific exercises with focus on increasing arm range of motion, increasing muscle strength and postural education.
  • To effectively reduce adhesion and scar tissue to fully restore range of motion

While clearly defined goals are important, our staff is very sensitive to your individual needs. We will work with you to achieve realistic and achievable goals. Treatment may include:

  • Lymphatic drainage to reduce excessive edema and fluid build up
  • Range of motion exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Reducing fascial adhesions and scar tissue
  • Massage therapy
  • Home exercise program

Treatment may take up to several months especially if adhesions and scar tissue have developed. If you have any questions about post mastectomy rehabilitation please contact our staff at Dynamic Physiotherapy.


How often should I come in for therapy?

Each patient is evaluated on a case by case basis. Depending on the type of injury and what stage of healing a recommendation will be made to you by the treating practitioner.
