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:
- Restricted range of motion
- Vestibular (balance and equilibrium) issues
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.
