Our leading Physical Therapists and Occupation Therapists are specialists in various rehabilitation techniques which are either targeted at a particular cancer diagnosis or, alternatively, focused on a range of cancer treatment related symptoms that are common to all cancer diagnoses.
Diagnosis-Centric Cancer rehabilitation programs
Usually, where a particular cancer is addressed by surgery in combination with chemotherapy or radiation therapy, we have specialists who focus on rehabilitation from the cancer treatments associated with that particular type of cancer. Examples of our diagnosis-centric programs include Breast Cancer Rehabilitation, Pelvic Cancer Rehabilitation (including ovarian, cervical, testicular, colon and prostate cancer) and Head & Neck Cancer Rehabilitation.
Symptom-Centric CANCER Rehabilitation Programs
In addition, we have symptom-centric programs that supplement the our diagnosis-centric treatment plans designed for patients with breast, pelvic or head & neck cancer as well as addressing the rehabilitative needs of a multitude of patients with other cancer diagnoses (for example lung cancer and brain tumors). Our cancer exercise and neurological oncology (neuro-oncology) programs are symptom-centric and help patients with chemo toxicity issues (like cancer related fatigue, chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy, balance, and dizziness), weakness and de-conditioning. Research has shown that cancer exercise programs can mitigate the impact of cancer treatment on the body’s pulmonary system, gastrointestinal, nervous, muscular and circulatory systems.
