How physical therapy can help patients with breast cancer
with advice from Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy, Peltz and Associates Physical Therapy and Spooner Physical Therapy
As we have written about in the past, cancer is one of the most prevalent and lethal diseases today. According to estimates from the American Cancer Society’s Statistics Center, more than 1.9 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. this year. 15% of those cases will be breast cancer, the most prevalent type of cancer.
The good news is that despite more Americans receiving a cancer diagnosis, death rates across multiple types of cancer are holding steady or decreasing, including for breast cancer survivors. In addition, it’s been shown that working with a physical therapist throughout treatment for breast cancer can help your body during cancer treatments, keeping you strong while your body withstands both the cancer and the treatments for it.
