Oncology Physio For Gynecological Cancer
Blog

Gynaecological Cancer commonly impacts women aged between 50-60, and can include cervical cancer, endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer.

Treatment often includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and immunotherapy, all offering their own set of varied side effects, impacting different body systems and your quality of life.

One of the most common impairments described by women with gynecological cancer is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

The Pelvic Floor plays a key role in pelvic organ support, continence, trunk stability and sexual function. This can be impacted by surgery to remove cancers, scarring from surgery, radiotherapy treatment impacting the soft tissue, and a reduction in the level of estrogen in your body; an important hormone that maintains tissue quality.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapists can assist patients with gynecological cancer by providing pelvic floor muscle training, manual therapy and stretching techniques, pain management, bladder and bowel retraining and advice and education around sexual health.

We can also help patients with other common side effects from cancer treatment, like chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy, cognitive dysfunction and fatigue.
