The St. Charles Cancer Center now offers oncology rehabilitation services.
Rehabilitation services offered at St. Charles Cancer Center support the hospital’s vision, "Creating America's healthiest community, together." Physical activity and maintaining functional independence is important throughout the cancer treatment spectrum. Physical activity has been associated with reduced risk of developing some types of cancer, and has been shown to help patients maintain wellness during and after cancer treatment. Research has also shown that maintaining physical function is a key component to the health and quality of life of people going through cancer treatment.
Being diagnosed with cancer is a time of change, with many people seeking opportunities for improved health and well-being which can include continuing to be physically active, starting new health habits, or maintaining physical and cognitive function needed for daily tasks. Unfortunately, many of the common side effects of cancer or its treatment can be barriers to reaching those goals. These barriers can be overcome with the help of a licensed physical, occupational, and/or speech therapist.
We have brought together experts in their field to provide you with individualized and evidence-based therapies to get you back to the activities you love. Our compassionate rehabilitation team will be there for you throughout your cancer journey and help you achieve your goals.
