Physiotherapy services are available to cancer patients who are in treatment at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, both at the wards and at the outpatient clinic. Physiotherapy aims to improve the patient’s ability to move and function with individual instructions and guidance, therapeutic exercises, as well as with physical and manual therapy.
 
Physiotherapy services include an evaluation of mobility and functional capacity, a plan to improve them, implementation of therapy, and organizing the patient’s further rehabilitation if necessary.
 
Our unit also evaluates the need for personal aids for patients, e.g. a compression sleeve worn after breast cancer surgery, assistive devices for movement, and other aids supporting daily activities. We also give advice on obtaining assistive devices.
