What is it?
The Academy of Oncologic Physical Therapy (a section of APTA) has a series of free fact sheets on their website for patients with a history of cancer or HIV. Each fact sheet covers background information on issues such as fatigue, lymphedema, radiation fibrosis, and others. The sheets also explain what physical therapy is and how it can help with each of these issues.
These fact sheets are an excellent starting place for patient education and can help patients with cancer or HIV understand how physical therapy can be relevant for them.
