Physical Therapy and Exercise

Research shows that an active lifestyle can enhance your recovery and reduce the symptoms and side effects associated with cancer treatment. A physical therapist can help with walking, balance, range of motion, and strength. They can also treat problems with swelling, scar tissue management, posture, incontinence, and painful intercourse.

Exercise training can contribute to positive physical changes and emotional wellness for cancer survivors. Most patients can safely participate in an exercise program throughout their treatment. Exercise programs can be adapted to meet your needs at every point in the treatment (and aftercare) process.
