Relieving pain, restoring function, and improving fatigue before, during, and after cancer treatment.
At the Middlesex Health Center for Oncology Rehabilitation Excellence (C.O.R.E.), we understand that coping with the side effects of cancer treatment can be as challenging as fighting the disease itself. Our specially-trained therapists work closely as a team to help you better manage your symptoms and increase your ability to handle daily tasks - and the activities you love.
What is cancer rehabilitation? What is it used to treat?
Cancer rehabilitation is similar to therapies used after other serious injuries or illnesses. Your team of Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists provides techniques to help improve:
- balance and walking (gait) problems
- concentration and memory problems
- lymphedema (swelling)
- memory and concentration issues
- shoulder problems
- swallowing and speech problems
- tiredness (fatigue)
