The benefits of physical therapy following breast cancer are often overlooked and underutilized. Benefits include pain reduction, range of motion and strength recovery, swelling/ edema control, and reduced risk for cancer reoccurrence. Treatments include gentle stretching and strengthening exercises, body mechanics training, manual therapy including fascial release, massage, and trigger point dry needling. Additionally, at HOPE Physical Therapy and Wellness we offer MPS Dolphin Neurostimulation, a unique type of microcurrent treatment aimed at reducing scar and adhesion formation, improving circulation and healing, as well as restoring overall health and wellness. We also treat patients following cosmetic breast procedures. Our therapists treat patients using a holistic approach, taking into consideration individual needs. We empower our patients by providing them with skills to improve and maintain their overall health.
