Our Physical Therapy program helps treat your post-treatment cancer-related aches and pains and gets you back to doing what you love.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy improves your mobility and functional movement and prevents dysfunction. Cancer survivors can experience functional challenges during their treatment and long after. Our physical therapists create a customized treatment plan based on your symptoms and goals.

Whether you need relief from pain, fatigue, or other symptoms, you work with an experienced team you can trust. We treat cancer survivors experiencing a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Pain
  • Numbness in feet and hands
  • Swelling of lymph nodes (lymphedema)
  • Swelling of arms, legs, torso, or face
  • Muscle weakness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of endurance
  • Loss of bone density (strength)
  • Difficulty walking
  • Loss of balance
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog
  • Heart problems

We give you personal attention to enhance your quality of life – with expert guidance and encouragement every step of the way.
