Addressing the Often Unspoken Effects of Radiation Therapy


House Calls Speaker: Dr. Samantha DuFlo, PT, DPT, has a doctorate in physical therapy, with a specialization in pelvic physical therapy, and treats the pain, weakness, and scar tissue that can result from surgery and radiation therapy. Radiation in the pelvic area binds tissue and can narrow the pelvic canal, affecting sexual function and continence, or bowel and bladder function. For those who have had breast cancer, Dr. DuFlo will discuss opening up scar tissue, scar self-massage, and ways to treat pain and weakness. Muscle releases, trigger point therapy, and breath work will also be a part of this presentation.This program would be of most interest to people with ovarian, uterine, cervical, vaginal, colorectal, and breast cancer. But those with other kinds of cancers may be interested as well and are welcome to attend. Wednesday, May 31, 6:30 - 8:00 pm. rsvp@hopewellcancersupport.org
