Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Printer Friendly Version Printer Friendly Version Share

The Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers a full spectrum of physical rehabilitation for the breast cancer survivor in a supportive environment. Loss of strength and function of the shoulder and a decrease in overall fitness often accompanies the surgical removal of the breast and lymph nodes. The Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Program allows clients to participate in treatments most appropriate for their stages of recovery. Services may include post-operative physical or occupational therapy, general exercise and fitness, and lymphedema (swollen arm) management.

In collaboration with the patient's physician, each program is individually designed based upon the patient's needs and current stages of treatment. In an atmosphere of wellness and hope, support and education is provided to teach each woman to identify and manage those risk factors over which she has control. This program is staffed by a physical therapist trained in the special needs of the breast cancer survivor.

Our program is modeled after the nationally renowned "Recovery in Motion" breast cancer rehabilitation program.

Treatment options include:

  • Comprehensive management of lymphedema (swelling)
  • Restoration of range of motion, strength and function
  • Pain management
  • Home exercise programs
  • Post-op management of breast reconstruction
