Cancer Rehabilitation

Living with cancer is more than just a diagnosis.

Living with any ailment is more than just a diagnosis but this is especially true with cancer. The journey of getting diagnosed, going through treatments, and then rebuilding afterwards can be massive.

At MVMT we respect the amount of work that you and your loved ones have put in to get where you are. Every person is going to have a different experience with unique challenges and it is our goal to help guide you through these as you continue your journey forwards.

Yes, cancer patients can go to rehab! Cancer rehabilitation helps people with cancer rebuild strength and mobility. It also works to manage pain and symptoms, as well as help with fatigue management. Cancer rehabilitation is tailored to the individual, so it can be a great way to help you recover and live your best life.

Cancer rehabilitation is a process to help cancer patients get back to their full health and functioning. It can involve physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychological support and more. The four stages of cancer rehab are:

  1. Assessment: In this stage, the patient will be assessed to determine what treatments may be necessary to help them reach their goal of full health.
  2. Treatment: During the treatment stage, the patient will work with the healthcare team to develop an individualized plan for rehabilitation.
  3. Recovery: During recovery, the patient will continue to work on their rehabilitation goals and progress towards their full health.
  4. Maintenance: The maintenance phase is the final stage of cancer rehabilitation. This is when the patient has achieved their desired level of health and is now focusing on maintaining that level through regular exercise, healthy eating and other lifestyle changes.
