When Cancer Rehabilitation Helps

Partner with your therapist to create a care plan tailored to you. Ask your doctor for a referral to rehabilitation if your cancer treatments cause side effects such as:

  • Balance or walking problems
  • Difficulty swallowing or speaking
  • Difficulty with daily activities, such as bathing and dressing
  • Incontinence
  • Lymphedema (swelling)
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Pain
  • Pelvic floor pain
  • Weakness or fatigue

Or, count on us to help you safely start or return to an exercise program or leisure activity after cancer treatment.

Lymphedema Management

You may experience lymphedema—swelling due to damage to your lymphatic system—after surgery or radiation therapy. Lymphedema therapy can help combat these uncomfortable reactions. Trust our Lymphology Association of North American (LANA)-certified therapists to help you safely and effectively manage lymphedema so can live more comfortably.

Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT)

You’ll benefit from combined decongestive therapy (CDT), a comprehensive treatment to decrease swelling by accelerating and redirecting the flow of lymph fluid. CDT typically includes:

  • Education about skin care
  • Gentle exercises
  • Manual lymph drainage (massage)
  • Medical compression bandaging
