Our oncology rehabilitation program at Encompass Health provides physical and occupational therapy to patients who are managing conditions related to cancer -- including any side effects of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation treatment. In addition to our comprehensive approach to clinical care, we also provide unique ways to help patients heal with improved results, which may include:
While our oncology team covers many areas of a patient’s rehabilitation process, we focus on one goal -- getting each patient back home with a higher quality of life. Through specialized programs like our manual lymph drainage (MLD) program, we aim to meet the complex medical, psychological and functional needs of patients with cancer-related conditions. We push past the barriers of traditional oncology rehabilitation to truly make a difference in the lives of our patients.
At Encompass Health, we offer two categories of cancer rehabilitation -- restorative and supportive. Whether the goal is to return to a prior level of function or to eliminate as much disability as possible, each patient receives a personalized care plan, detailed with specific treatments and techniques to help them in their cancer recovery. To ensure success, we begin by discussing the patient’s and their family’s expectations for rehabilitation, proactively communicating progress with each step. This coordinated approach means every patient receives care that adapts fluidly and works best for them.
When you have a team of experts that is passionate about seeing patients’ lives change for the better, you can expect results. Our team of rehabilitation nurses, case managers, physicians, dietitians, pharmacists and other highly qualified clinicians proactively communicate goals and treatments for each patient, inspiring confidence throughout cancer rehabilitation.
Compassionate, effective rehabilitation is what we do best. Our history of success comes from our commitment to delivering care that adapts fluidly to meet patients where they are. When it comes to cancer rehabilitation, we focus on inspiring our patients and their loved ones with the confidence it takes to step into independence.
