Rehabilitation can be your foundation for functioning before, during and after cancer treatment. Before treatment, rehabilitation can help you build strength and endurance. While you are undergoing treatment, it can help you maintain your physical well-being and functional independence, and reduce pain and discomfort. After treatment, rehabilitation can help you regain function, improve strength and decrease fatigue. With today’s state-of-the-art equipment and skilled therapists, cancer rehabilitation is central to fitness and function, and may help improve your quality of life.
The Cancer Rehabilitation Program at Jupiter Medical Center is dedicated to helping you achieve your highest level of physical and cognitive functioning. Our integrated rehabilitation team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and massage therapists. Our therapists aim to help you reduce stress, regain your strength, energy and independence, and improve your overall quality of life.
Cancer patients receive specialized outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation services that are tailored to meet their individualized needs based on health issues relating from their cancer or from cancer treatment.
The goals of occupational therapy are to assist and train in performing Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as grooming, dressing, eating, playing with your children and interacting with family and friends in your community.
The goals of physical therapy are to reduce your pain, improve your mobility (i.e., walking, going up stairs, getting in and out of bed), and restore your physical function/performance of everyday activities.
Speech-language pathologists help you with speech production, vocal production, language needs, swallowing problems, and other related disorders through speech therapy.
