The Survivorship Program brings together patients and healthcare providers to promote optimized health and healing of mind, body and spirit, through integrative practices and education before, during and after cancer treatment.
Physical therapists, with specialty training in oncology rehabilitation, work with your physician(s) to create an individualized wellness and exercise program. First, you will meet with a licensed physical therapist for an exercise screening to determine the best possible exercise program to meet your needs. The emphasis will be on improving movement, balance, promoting fitness and supporting a healthy lifestyle.
Supervised Exercise Program - Overseen by a clinician, this exercise and wellness program promotes fun, fitness, function and friendship for people before, during or after cancer treatment. Open sessions are offered for exercise following the physical therapist screening and physician clearance.
Individual Wellness - As a Cancer Survivorship Program participant, you receive a fitness evaluation and individualized exercise or activity plan that you can work on at home or in a fitness center.
Physical Therapy - If you require more specialized care, skilled physical therapy can help you manage movement problems related to weakness, surgical restrictions, low fitness levels and lymphedema. Traditional therapy includes therapeutic exercise, manual techniques, aerobic exercise and lymphedema management.
Nutrition classes offer information on nutrition for prevention and survivorship, as well as during cancer treatment. Learn how diet influences cancer, sample foods and take home recipes, from a registered dietitian and executive chef.
