​While cancer treatment can save your life, it also can leave you feeling tired and weak. To help you regain your strength and functioning, reduce fatigue and reclaim the best-possible quality of life during and after surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy, specially trained oncology therapists at Emerson Hospital offer a variety of individual and group rehabilitation programs.

These cancer rehabilitation programs are designed specifically for people with all types of cancer diagnoses, in all phases of treatment — including after treatment. 

The aim of oncology rehabilitation is to prevent or lessen the development of long-term issues such as:
  • Lymphedema
  • Restricted range of motion
  • Fibrosis
  • Deconditioning
  • Vestibular (balance and equilibrium) issues
  • Pain
  • Neuropathy

Whether you require physical, occupational or speech language therapy, our skilled oncology therapists will develop a cancer rehabilitation program that focuses on your specific needs.
