Cancer survivors face many challenges, both during and after treatment. Rehabilitation can help patients maintain physical well-being and functional independence, as well as reduce pain and discomfort during cancer treatments.
After cancer treatment is completed, physical therapy and occupational therapy focus on helping patients regain function, improve strength, and decrease fatigue. Lymphedema prevention and management is also available.
Patients are monitored and supervised throughout the rehabilitation process at Miami Valley Hospital’s Rehabilitation Institute of Ohio.
