Cancer Care and Rehabilitation

Cancer rehabilitation focuses on the management of symptoms and side-effects associated with cancer and cancer treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, etc.). Depending on the specific cancer treatment, some of these side-effects may include:

  • Decreased range of motion (tightness in the muscles and joints)
  • Decreased strength
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling and lymphedema
  • Pain
