Cancer Treatment and Rehabilitation

The American Cancer Society and National Comprehensive Cancer Network confirm that exercise after surgery, during chemotherapy and radiation treatments provides critical benefits to patients; helping you get strong and stay strong. Also, eliminating or preventing many treatment side- effects.

Cancer and its treatments can have lasting effects on daily performance impacting physical, cognitive, emotional, and social functioning. The treatments that help to save your life often can be debilitating. The good news is that research shows cancer rehabilitation can relieve, eliminate, or even prevent many treatment side effects! Don’t put your life on hold or give up the things you enjoy.

Don’t wait. Ask your healthcare provider for a referral to therapy. The good news—cancer rehabilitation can provide healing benefits throughout the course of and following treatment, well into survivorship.
