The Adrián Hoteles Foundation supports Oncological Physiotherapy with the acquisition of specialized medical equipment: a «Low Power Laser Therapy» machine and another «Passive Gymnastics for Lymphedema» as well as an electric couch to receive the treatments, which have been put on available to the Spanish Association Against Cancer - AECC
Oncological physiotherapy is a special treatment that aims to prevent, treat and / or resolve all the lesions that the oncological process can leave in a patient and that are susceptible to treatment with specific physiotherapy techniques
It is aimed at the treatment of sequelae in patients of any age and affected by any type of cancer. It is an indispensable tool in the multidisciplinary team for the integral rehabilitation of the patient.
The appearance of the sequels is different for each type of cancer and for each person who suffers it. Thus, the protocol of action will be done individually, always taking into account the global nature of the patient.
Oncological physiotherapy may be necessary in the pre and postoperative tumors of the neck, head, pelvic tumors (prostate, uterus, ovaries ...), bone tumors, oncohematological, skin tumors and thoraco-abdominal tumors (colon, lung, breast ...) .
Any patient who develops symptoms (pain, urinary and / or fecal incontinence, respiratory distress, fatigue, lymphedema, trismus, hemiplegia, paresis, etc.) related to the sequelae of oncological therapy (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy) is susceptible to treatment with physiotherapy.
The techniques used are diverse, depending on the time of the process and the sequel to be treated. They are techniques adapted to the oncological process, non-invasive and with very beneficial results for the patient.
The main purpose of oncological physiotherapy is to improve the quality of life of the cancer patient.
