Abstract

It has been demonstrated that as a result of breast cancer and its treatment, survivors of the disease experience a high prevalence of functional impairments. Survivors may experience short-term, long-term or late effects causing impairment, which often leads to difficulties with daily living. Cancer rehabilitation focuses on the restoration of maximum ability in survivors and can be implemented at any point in the disease continuum. While working with the oncology team, a physiatrist-led rehabilitation team has the potential to prevent significant decline in function and improve quality of life of breast cancer survivors.
