Whether you’ve been recently diagnosed or are well into survivorship, cancer rehabilitation can play a vital role in the recovery process. At CHI Saint Joseph Health, our comprehensive rehabilitation program is focused on helping you manage the effects of cancer and its treatment, and get you back to doing what you need and love to do.
Our cancer rehabilitation program includes your own dedicated, multi-skilled team—including physical, occupational and speech therapists, specially trained nurses, dietitians, mental health professionals and more. These experts work closely together, with your oncologists and with you to create a personalized plan based on your unique needs and goals. We’ll also work with your health insurance provider to help determine coverage.
Common ways we help include:
With some cancer surgeries, lymph nodes and the attached vessels may need to be removed. That can sometimes result in painful swelling in the arms and legs, called lymphedema.
Our lymphedema therapists provide a variety of treatments to help control these symptoms, including education, manual lymphatic drainage, compression bandaging, skin care and self-management techniques and appropriate exercise.
