Randolph Health Cancer Center has a team of rehabilitation specialists focused on improving the lives of cancer survivors through various forms of rehabilitation. Using training and rehabilitation, we are convinced cancer survivors can achieve the highest quality of life.
Benefits of Cancer Survivorship Training
Cancer treatments can cause a variety of physical side effects that often lead to a reduced quality of life for survivors. Through rehabilitation, patients have an opportunity to lessen and alleviate these side effects and to function at a higher level sooner rather than later.
Cancer survivorship training and rehabilitation can help patients:
- Improve endurance and cardiovascular conditioning
- Increase muscle strength
- Improve joint range of motion
- Decrease pain
- Lessen fatigue
- Improve immune function
- Increase bone density
- Manage lymphedema
- Improve balance and coordination
- Decrease psychological stress
