Physiotherapy for Meningioma

Physiotherapy for Meningioma

It is essential that individuals with meningioma receive specialist neurological physiotherapy in order to treat the symptoms and return to a normal active life. Depending on the stage of your condition, physiotherapy treatment may include:

  • Muscle strengthening
  • Core stability exercises
  • Muscle and joint mobilizations
  • Balance exercises
  • Transfer practice ie. bed to chair or sit to stand
  • Mobility practice
  • Provision of walking aids/exercise equipment
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Pain and scar tissue management
  • Advice and education re: fatigue
  • Practice of functional activities
  • Reintegration into the community/ work
  • Carer education

All treatment will be focused on specific goals set by the individual during the initial assessment. Perhaps your brother had cancer 5 years ago and he still has problems with his walking, his goal could be to walk to the corner shop within a month. Maybe you?ve had surgery to remove the cancer and want to get back to your normal routine; you could aim to return to swimming or cycling. Those who have a loved one who has declined medical treatment may benefit from physiotherapy to keep them comfortable and maintain dignity at the end of life.
