Oncology Rehabilitation Program
We understand that facing a cancer diagnosis is never easy, and the impact from cancer can last well beyond the course of treatment. Our physical therapists receive specialized oncology training and will work with your physician to develop a rehabilitation program that’s right for you. We’re here to support you and your loved ones throughout your cancer journey and into survivorship.
Prehabilitation services are offered prior to starting medical treatment. This specialized form of therapy will help you to build strength and improve your function so that you can better manage treatment-related side-effects. We’ll be there to help you set your individual goals and get you through the physical and mental challenges ahead.
During your treatment, our priority is to help you maintain your function and quality of life. We provide encouragement and motivation in a safe, supportive environment. We can provide oncologic care on an inpatient or outpatient basis, or offer oncology rehabilitation as part of skilled nursing care.
