Before you begin cancer treatment, rehabilitation can help you build strength and endurance.
While you are undergoing treatment, it can help you maintain physical well-being and reduce discomfort.
After treatment, it can help you regain function and strength.
At Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, our Cancer rehabilitation Program addresses your unique needs at each stage of your treatment and survivorship. These may include lymphedema, fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, joint stiffness, weakness, cognitive problems, balance problems, and issues with communication, swallowing or eating.
Cancer rehabilitation sites address the unique health and quality-of-life issues of cancer survivors who are undergoing treatment or living with the side effects of cancer treatment.
