CANCER REHAB HELPS PEOPLE UNDERGOING TREATMENT FOR CANCER WITH THEIR PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL WELL BEING.

Allina Health offers comprehensive and compassionate expert rehabilitation care for people before, during and after treatment for cancer. Cancer may affect many parts of your life – from physical and social to psychological and work. Cancer rehabilitation addresses the effects that cancer and cancer treatment can have in these areas of your life. At Allina Health, we have an entire team who will work closely with you through every step of your rehabilitation experience.  

Rehabilitation can begin at any point in your cancer care. Before you begin cancer treatment, rehabilitation can help you build strength and endurance and provide you with education regarding common side effects you may experience in your cancer care. While you are undergoing treatment, it can help you participate in cancer treatment, maintain physical well being and reduce discomfort. After treatment, cancer rehabilitation can help you regain function and strength and resume activities you enjoy. 

Rehabilitation can help treat some effects related to a cancer diagnosis, including:

  • balance problems
