Oncology Rehabilitation for Liver Cancer
Liver cancer and its treatment can affect your physical functioning and overall energy. The oncology rehabilitation team at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) helps you build strength and endurance, regain independence, reduce stress, and maintain the energy you need to participate in activities that are important to you throughout your liver cancer treatment.
The oncology rehabilitation team at CTCA includes licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists.
As part of your liver cancer treatment, our physical therapists can help you design an individualized exercise program that combines range-of-motion training with light resistance exercises to minimize your fatigue and optimize your physical function.
Our oncology rehabilitation team’s occupational therapists can help you with daily living activities that are important to your routine and quality of life, such as dressing, showering, and eating.
Speech and Language Pathology
Many liver cancer patients who receive chemotherapy benefit from speech and language pathology. Therapists address problems such as dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, loss of voice, and cognitive changes that can result from cancer treatment.
Our massage therapists can help reduce cancer-related pain and improve your quality of life during your liver cancer treatment.
This painless, non-invasive treatment, which involves stimulation of the auricle of the external ear, can help alleviate some of the side effects of liver cancer treatments, such as pain, nausea or fatigue.
