Cancer Rehabilitation and Support Services at Grand View Hospital
While you tackle cancer head-on, life still goes on. Grand View, a leader in cancer care in Upper Bucks and Northeastern Montgomery counties, offers many services to help you cope with the physical, mental, and emotional effects of cancer treatments.
Cancer Rehabilitation at Grand View Hospital
Our Licensed therapists can help you:
- Handle Fatigue and Weakness
Cancer treatments may leave you feeling tired. Exercise, not sleep or rest, is recommended for cancer-related fatigue. Through our program, you will receive a personalized exercise program, designed and monitored by a team to help you feel more energized.
- Control Balance Disturbances
Two common side effects of cancer treatment, weight loss and abnormal sensations in the legs, can cause you to feel off balance. Our therapists can help you improve your balance and prevent falls and injuries.
- Manage Pain, Muscle Tightness, and Loss of Motion
After surgery or radiation therapy, our therapists will help you to improve posture, increase range of motion, decrease pain, and reduce your risk for long-term musculoskeletal problems.
- Treat Lymphatic Swelling
Radiation therapy, lymph node removal, or surgery can affect your lympatic system. Lymphedema is an over-accumulation of protein-rich fluid that causes abnormal swelling in one or more areas of the body. Our certified therapists thoroughly trained in Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), help to reduce swelling, describe potential complications, and teach self-management techniques. Treatment is most effective when started early.
