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
