Cancer Rehabilitation

Specialized cancer rehabilitation at Penn Therapy & Fitness helps people with cancer maintain and restore physical and emotional well-being. Cancer rehabilitation is available before, during and after treatment.

Fatigue is one of the most common and most difficult side-effects of cancer and its treatments. In fact, more than 70 percent of cancer patients complain of fatigue, making it a common and challenging symptom. While there are several reasons why you may tire more easily, research shows that exercise can help decrease fatigue in cancer patients.

Cancer Rehabilitation Can Manage Conditions Related To Fatigue Including:

  • Decreased endurance
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Low energy levels
  • Whole body tiredness

By becoming more active, you can also begin to recondition your body and regain some of the strength that cancer treatment often takes away. At Penn Therapy & Fitness, our therapists work with your physician to create a customized treatment plan including an individualized exercise and reconditioning program to reduce fatigue, increase activity and well-being.

  • A home exercise program
  • An individualized assessment of strength, balance, endurance, and fatigue
  • An individualized exercise program based on the results of the initial assessment
  • A supervised exercise program where vital signs are monitored
  • Education on energy conservation techniques

One of our cancer rehabilitation experts will perform a comprehensive assessment and develop a personalized exercise program to meet your individual needs.
