Cancer Rehabilitation

Cancer patients often undergo surgeries and treatments that can take a severe toll on the body, causing weakness and fatigue; muscle, tissue and joint restrictions; and balance and coordination problems. Research has found that Physical Therapy can help during and after treatment.

After surgery, chemotherapy or radiation treatment, Physical Therapy can help restore function, muscle tone, range of motion, balance and independence.

Frequently, Physical Therapists treat patients who are recovering from breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers; head and neck cancers; prostate and colon cancers; leukemia; and lymphoma. In fact, Physical Therapy can be used during or after the treatment of all types of cancers to help restore function and improve quality of life.
