Oncology Rehabilitation for Prostate Cancer
Our prostate cancer rehabilitation therapists help you build strength and endurance, regain independence, reduce stress and maintain the energy you need to participate in activities that are important to you.
The oncology rehabilitation team at CTCA includes licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists.
As part of your prostate cancer treatment, our physical therapists can help you design an individualized exercise program that combines range-of-motion training with light resistance exercises. These therapeutic exercises aim to minimize your fatigue and optimize your physical function, safety and well-being.
Our 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 prostate cancer patients 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 your cancer-related pain and improve your quality of life during your prostate cancer treatment.
This painless, non-invasive form of oncology rehabilition, which involves stimulation of the auricle of the external ear, can help alleviate some of the side effects of prostate cancer treatments, such as pain, nausea or fatigue.
