“A personalized physical therapy program can help cancer patients return to their prior level of functioning and encourage lifestyle changes that may help improve overall health and well-being,” says Joe L’Abbe, Physical Therapist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) near Chicago.

L’Abbe joined CTCA® in 2013 to focus on helping patients improve their quality of life. He believes in a patient-centric approach to the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction. Working with cancer patients, L’Abbe strives to help improve movement and function, relieve pain and expand movement potential.

L’Abbe earned a bachelor’s degree at University of Illinois at Chicago in physical education and kinesiotherapy. He then returned to University of Illinois at Chicago, where he graduated with a second bachelor’s degree in physical therapy.  

When he is not at CTCA, L’Abbe enjoys spending time with his wife. Together, they have a grown son and daughter. Outside of work, he is also passionate about bicycling.
