There are many physiotherapy treatment options available to treat decubitus ulcer in normal individuals. However, for cancer patients, no useful modality has been proved beneficial to treat the same. Matrix Rhythm Therapy (MaRhyThe) is a new therapeutic approach, with minimum or no side effects, that has demonstrated to restore the good tissue resonance and proved relatively safe to be used in cancer patients for pain relief. This case report presents a 65‑year‑old female suffering from rectal cancer, who underwent low anterior resection procedure, with complaints of difficulty to walk and a large bed sore on a sacral area. Twelve sessions of MaRhyThe demonstrated a significant improvement in terms of reduction in pain and decubitus ulcer size and improved ambulation.
