Restoring function and independence after cancer treatment
Many cancer patients don't complain about symptoms and side effects because they believe they have to "live with it" as part of the disease. This isn't so, according to the St. Mary's of Michigan rehabilitation experts. The probram is the first of its kind in the area:
• Individual consultation to determine rehabilitation needs (whether for loss of strength, pain, swelling, scar tissue, and much more)
• Extensive education to help return to normal activities after cancer
• Therapeutic exercise programs to improve musculoskeletal systems and decrease fatigue
• Bridging the gap between patients and the medical community for years to come
Cancer rehabilitation is offered at St. Mary's of Michigan locations in Birch Run, Chesaning, Saginaw (Gratiot, Riverfront, Towne Centre) and Vassar. For more information, call (989) 907-7680.
