Treatment of cancer in the facial part of the skull and neighboring tissues can lead to an iatrogenic reduction in the extent of mandibular movement. This leads to difficulties in therapy and limitations in function. Aim of the study. To describe cases of prosthetic treatment involving physiotherapy in patients with reduction of mandibular movement as a result of the treatment of head and neck cancer. In every case described here, physiotherapeutic procedures to improve the extent of mandibular abduction were a prerequisite to prosthetic treatment. As a result of manual therapy and regular exercises prescribed by a physiotherapist, mandibular movement increased, which enabled taking impressions and undertaking prosthetic rehabilitation. Conclusion. Interdisciplinary cooperation, particularly the inclusion of physiotherapeutic procedures, enables effective rehabilitation of patients who have been affected by treatment of cancer located in the head and neck region.
