How Rehabilitation Helps Before, During and After Cancer Treatment

Northwest Medical Specialties understands that cancer patients and survivors often face painful, function-limiting consequences brought on by acute treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery. Cancer rehabilitation can help those individuals regain strength, physical function and the independence they may have lost due to cancer or its treatment. Read on the ways ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation‘s cancer rehabilitation program helps patients before, during and after cancer treatment.

Empowerment

Cancer rehabilitation is a process that helps cancer patients achieve and maintain their maximum possible physical, social, psychological and vocational functions within the limits created by cancer and its treatments. Cancer rehabilitation empowers patients to activate their care, take control and improve their quality of life.

Faster, Stronger Recovery

Prehabilitation, or prehab, provides newly diagnosed cancer patients with a complete picture of what they can expect during all phases of their cancer journey from diagnosis, through treatment and cancer rehabilitation therapy. Informed patients typically experience less anxiety and are more aware of potential complications.

Support from a Specialized Team

Our multidisciplinary team is here to support you throughout your journey from preparing you for rehabilitation with “prehab” to physical, occupational, and speech language therapy. Our team provides services ranging from diagnosis through survivorship.

Proactively Manage Side Effects

We are here to help you with a range of issues. Those include: pain and spasms, fatigue, balance, mobility, strength, endurance, memory, concentration, lymphedema, speech, swallowing, enhancing function and restoring or maintaining quality of life.

Specialized Care You Deserve

ReVital therapists are specially-trained in oncology rehabilitation and understand the unique challenges patients face while undergoing cancer treatment. Our therapists choose to specialize in cancer therapy because they want to help people thrive, not just survive.

COVID-19 NOTICE

Important COVID 19  Information for patients of Northwest Medical Specialties

November 16, 2020 Update

IMPORTANT: NO VISITORS
During these difficult times we are making every effort to keep our patients and staff safe from COVID 19, we appreciate your patience and understanding with the changes you may have seen within our practice.

We strive to protect our patients and staff as much as we possibly can from any exposure on our premises.  NWMS has implemented a system wide policy that does not allow anyone in the building that is not a patient and everyone must wear an NWMS provided mask over their mouth and nose during their time on our premises.  This is to protect our vulnerable patients from the unforeseen possibility of exposure to COVID 19 which can be transmitted through aerosol droplets.  Sadly, we have had patients that have died from the complications of COVID 19, which is both devastating and preventable.

We offer a virtual visit option for family, friends, and companions to participate in the care of our patients through Zoom.  Our staff will assist you with every step of the login process and invite you to participate in real time from your vehicle or designated safe space in our building. Please contact us at 253-428-8700 to set this up.

The following offices are temporarily closed:
