Whether you’re in active cancer treatment, in survivorship, or are experiencing lingering symptoms related to your cancer, these specialized rehabilitation services are also available to you at any time throughout the course of your treatment and beyond.
As with pre-habilitation, a functional assessment will help identify any deficits and aid your treatment team in developing a customized therapy program – including exercises and interventions to counteract symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment. Since everyone has a unique medical history, you will receive an individualized plan – including the frequency and duration of treatment – to address your concerns and help speed recovery
With specialty care physical therapy, our goal is to minimize bothersome symptoms, increase your strength and endurance, and help you have the best quality of life possible – by improving your daily function and helping you heal physically from cancer treatment.
Your primary care provider or oncologist can coordinate care for you with CHI Memorial’s rehabilitation professionals. For more information about whether specialty care physical therapy is right for you or for help obtaining a referral from your cancer team, please call 423.495.4705. For any cancer related concern, call 423.495.2222.
