Individualized Cancer Rehabilitation Program
Your cancer rehabilitation experience depends on many factors including type of tumor; organs affected; treatment methods such as chemotherapy, surgery or radiation; and your individual capabilities and support systems. Your rehabilitation team will develop an individualized program with you to address your functional limitations and concerns, and achieve your personal goals.
Your rehabilitation team will be lead by a physiatrist – a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation – and may include nurses, physical and occupational therapists, pain management specialists, speech-language pathologists, counselors and nutritionists specializing in working with cancer patients.
With You Every Step of the Way
Beginning rehabilitation before your cancer treatment can help improve your health and your ability to tolerate some side effects. At your acute care hospital, cancer rehabilitation therapies will help you avoid the fatigue and impairment that often accompany acute oncology treatments. Keeping your energy is vital to retaining your abilities.
