Oncology Physical Therapy
“How can physical therapy help me after I receive chemotherapy or radiation?”
Patients who undergo cancer treatment are often left feeling increased fatigue and muscle weakness along with neurological issues. Some patients report they feel like their bodies have aged 30-40 years, but their mind is still young and vital.
With the increasing prevalence of cancer survivors, there has been a surge in research related to the benefits of exercise and rehabilitation after chemo or radiation therapy. Oncologists are encouraging their patients to be as physically active as possible during cancer treatment. Evidence shows physical therapy and a consistent exercise program reduces the risk of recurring cancer and improves quality of life.
Our oncology therapists are specially trained in cancer rehabilitation and work one-on-one with each patient to design a personalized exercise program and return to an improved level of function.
