Cancer Rehabilitation

The Sentara Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers complimentary screens to cancer survivors to determine the appropriate level of therapy intervention needed when there are issues with day-to-day function, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Decreased endurance
  • Balance problems
  • Joint stiffness
  • Pain
  • Difficulty with walking
  • Postural changes

The screening includes an assessment of functional living skills, balance, strength and endurance.

Through exercise, balance training, patient and family education, and pulmonary rehabilitation, our therapists help patients improve overall quality of life and reach their highest level of functional independence.
