Oncology Rehabilitation Services

The objective of Oncology Rehabilitation is to improve a patient's quality of life. Treatment may occur at any stage of the care and/or recovery process.

Each patient is individually evaluated to determine their needs. An appropriate treatment program is then designed specifically for her/him.

Rehabilitation programs offered at WellSpan include treatment for the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Deconditioning from treatment
  • Fatigue
  • Lymphedema
  • Limited mobility
  • Decreased strength
  • Tissue tightness and scars
  • Bowel & bladder dysfunction
  • Difficulty swallowing or slurred speech

Treatments may include:

  • Exercise (strengthening, range of motion, conditioning, etc.)
  • Mobility training
  • Lymphedema management
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Management of swelling
  • Balance and walking activities
  • Fitness education
  • Speech therapy for eating, swallowing or talking

Cancer patients may have a free assessment visit in order to talk with a therapist and discuss the need for treatment. The results will be discussed with the patient and reported to his/her physician. A collaborative decision for therapy can then be made. 

The WellSpan Cancer Centers provide education and support services to outpatients through oncology nurses, social workers, dietitians and financial counselors. Our staff works closely with doctors, other health care professionals, community agencies and hospitals in order to serve the patient's needs in the most caring and effective way possible.
