Breast Cancer Rehabilitation in Batavia

Chiropractic Batavia IL Breast Cancer Therapy

Breast cancer patients in Batavia have three unique challenges after chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, and surgery. Gentle chiropractic care, massage therapy, physical therapy, and exercise protocols can transform and rehabilitate the painful effects of structural changes.


Breast Cancer in Batavia

  1. Poor Wound Healing - The toll on a woman's body can be profound after powerful interventions to destroy and remove unhealthy cells. After breast cancer surgery, drainage ports and high doses of antibiotics are often used to stop the infection. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy not only destroy unhealthy tissue, but it also affects healthy tissue and the patient's immune response. With nutriceuticals, a family of specialized vitamin formulas, herbal compounds, glandular products, and enzymes can be prescribed to up-regulate the breast cancer patient's immune system and hasten tissue healing after surgery.
  2. Fear and Fatigue - The cancer experience is a gauntlet, not a journey. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, and hopelessness can lead the breast cancer patient to exhaustion and despair. Nutriceuticals are prescribed to up-regulate the patient's cortisol levels by normalizing the function of the hypothalamus, thyroid, and adrenal glands. Our clinic prescribes massage therapy to take the breast patient out of the "fight or flight" mode and into the parasympathetic "peaceful" state.
  3. Physical Pain or Discomfort - After breast tissue and the chest wall are surgically altered, the patient's posture morphs toward rounded shoulders, forward head, and "hunch back.” This postural distortion causes neck and upper back pain and can feel unattractive to the patient.
