Cancer Rehabilitation

Presbyterian’s cancer rehabilitation program offers rehabilitation and support for patients in all phases of cancer treatment. Our team will help create an individualized exercise program to fit your physical abilities and limitations, to help you get the most out of life, feel healthier and improve your chances of long-term survival. The programs can help you decrease fatigue associated with your cancer treatments, increase or maintain your independence and ability to do activities of daily living, and increase tolerance of your cancer treatments, as well as help you improve your swallowing, voice and other possible language difficulties.
