HOW CANCER REHABILITATION THERAPY HELPS:
Navigating cancer treatment can feel scary and confusing. We understand this and will help you take care of yourself through the process.
Just as a course of rehabilitation typically follows an injury, joint replacement, an accident or disease process, rehabilitation is often required (and a welcome relief) in conjunction with treatment for cancer.
95% of those who survive a cancer diagnosis and treatment will have at least one residual effect. An individualized rehabilitation plan helps survivors adjust to a new sense of normal and return to a desired quality of life.
CANCER REHABILITATION CAN ADDRESS A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL ISSUES INCLUDING:
- identifying the effects of chemotherapy
- scar management
- maintenance of motion due to surgical or radiation scarring
- myofascial release
- kinesio taping
- psychosocial needs
- axillary web syndrome
- pain management
- fatigue management
- energy conservation
- aerobic conditioning
- neuropathy/sensation assessment
- compression garment education and fitting
- family and caregiver education
- dietary education
- restorative yoga and meditation
- individualized exercise program based on surgical intervention
