Physiotherapists have strong knowledge and skills to deal with many of the functional problems that result from cancer treatment.

Rehabilitation services, including physiotherapy, should be integrated at the point of diagnosis to assess an individual's baseline functional performance status and inform the cancer care plan.

Physiotherapy has an important role in cancer care in all it's stages:

  • Prevention

  • Prehabilitation

  • Cancer treatment

  • Rehabilitation

  • After cancer

  • Advanced cancer
