Post-Mastectomy Treatment

A person with breast cancer may undergo a variety of treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery. After some of these treatments, shoulder flexibility and strength can be affected, resulting in difficulty with activities such as dressing, bathing, and combing hair can be a challenge. Occupational and Physical Therapy can assist in restoring function.

Whether you’ve had a lumpectomy or a mastectomy with or without reconstruction, the Women’s Health Rehabilitation Program at Northeast Rehab is committed to helping improve quality of life and function after breast cancer treatment. Our treatments are designed to:

  • Promote post-op healing
  • Alleviate pain and swelling
  • Prevent scar tissue formation
  • Improve arm/shoulder strength and flexibility
  • Improve posture
  • Increase endurance
  • Prevent lymphedema

Maya Abdominal Massage Therapy

The Arvigo techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage address the position and health of pelvic and abdominal organs and improves organ function by releasing physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen.

The massage is performed in a slow, deep, penetrating manner to the abdomen and lower back which helps to guide internal reproductive organs into their proper position. By softening deep muscle tissue spasms, it also helps to release muscular tension.

This massage corrects poor blood flow in the abdomen and the organs vital to digestion, assimilation, elimination, secretions and reproduction.
