ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation Logo

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.

Treatment plans are tailored to a patient’s needs and address common side effects such as:

  • Joint aches
  • Neck or back pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Loss of strength
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Radiation fibrosis
  • Lymphedema
  • Muscle spasms, cramps or achiness
  • Bowel and bladder disorders
  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Balance or walking difficulties

We are able to provide care in our clinics and also in the comfort of your home via telerehab.

 

What is Telerehab?

If you’re concerned or limited by travel, or have a weakened immune system, Telerehab lets you easily connect with one of our specialized cancer rehabilitation therapists through web-based technology.

Telerehab sessions are delivered in real-time and are private, secure and adhere to HIPAA requirements. They may be offered in place of or in addition to in-clinic sessions, dependent upon your condition and preference.

How does it work?

First, you’ll need to schedule your appointment. Then all you need is a computer or device with a camera, microphone and internet access to begin. Simply click on the link we send you — no downloads or accounts necessary!

Just like the care you would receive in our center, we’ll cover:

-A review of your medical and oncologic history, current problems and complaints, how they are impacting your daily activities.
-Exercises, education, and techniques personalized to your individual needs.
-Instruction on how to best move forward with your program.
-We will also arrange for the delivery of equipment to support your program at home, if needed.
-Our therapists will work with you and your care team to make sure Telerehab is right for you. Whether in-person or virtually, our goal is to help improve your quality of life throughout your cancer journey.

I grew up in Maine. I love to travel. New Zealand is my favorite destination. Yes I went bungee jumping, and skydiving. I scuba dive too.  Yoga, nature, and reading are my self care activities.  I would rather have experiences than things.  I can appear extroverted at work, but really I’m an introvert.  I would love to know what books you have loved reading.  Book club anyone?

My Dad was in Army so I traveled all over the US and world as a child. I then served as an Army Officer for 8 years during which I was deployed to Iraq for 15 months. I love to travel and experience different cultures. I enjoy all things outdoors: hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, camping. I also love to read Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels and cross-stitching. I have 3 cats who are my fur-babies, including one I brought back from Iraq!

COVID-19 NOTICE

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.
