At Chestnut Hill Physical we understand the complexities of caring for patients before, during, and after cancer treatment. Our holistic approach will help you live your best life possible, with greater ease and energy in body, mind, and spirit.

 

Emphasizing skilled, hands-on treatment, our goal is to minimize pain, decrease reliance on medication, and most of all create a customized pathway to healing. Through education and a variety of treatment modalities, we can help you become an active participant in your care, reducing symptoms and ultimately regaining balance and a sense of control in your life.

 

Part of what we offer all patients – whether they come once, a few times, or regularly – is a connection to other resources, like care products or consultations, that are in a network of providers and organizations.

"Strength doesn't come from what you can do.

It comes from overcoming the things you once

thought you couldn't."​​

-Rikki Rodgers

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Cancer treatment can be devastating to the mind, body, and spirit. Though medical interventions address the disease, they may come with side effects causing pain, discomfort, fatigue, and other changes that diminish both ability and energy. Physical therapy can help.

SCAR MANAGEMENT

When undergoing surgery and radiation, skin changes are common. Our treatments accelerate healing, minimize pain, and restore skin shape, texture, and comfort

LYMPHEDEMA
PAIN MANAGEMENT

Lymphedema is a stagnation of lymph – a fluid that contains infection-fighting white blood cells – that is no longer recirculating in the body. There are a variety of stages of lymphedema, and the early stages are reversible.

It is not unusual to experience pain following surgical, radiation or chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. We offer several options to treat your pain including:

Soft Tissue Massage, Instrument Assisted Massage, Ultrasound, Dry Needling,

and Laser Therapy.

 
COMPRESSION GARMENTS
ENERGY HEALING

Compression Garments can be quite helpful in managing lymphedema and scar management. They help the scars to minimize because the compression causes the collagen to lay down in a parallel fashion so it does not become raised. Compression garments minimize itching and provide more comfort and normalize the pigmentation of the scars.

Reiki taps into the energy fields in your own body and works to unblock areas that have decreased flow due to trauma, repetitive use, and surgery.  By re-establishing flow to these blocked areas, circulation is increased resulting in relaxation and pain reduction. For some patients, Reiki is also effective for reducing nausea associated with chemotherapy and radiation
