What is cancer rehabilitation?
Cancer rehabilitation can be physical, occupational or speech therapy designed to address the functional impairments associated with cancer. Our program is tailored for individuals who are undergoing or have completed treatment for cancer. Patients diagnosed with cancer will have a variety of treatment options which may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies.
Cancer and treatment can cause a wide range of side-effects such as fatigue, pain, decreased range of motion, weakness, fibrosis, incontinence, lymphedema, cognitive changes, swallowing/speech issues or impaired balance. Therapists use a variety of techniques to treat these symptoms. Our goal is to improve function and quality of life for patients throughout their cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
