Oncology Rehabilitation Diagnoses
Patients needing Oncology Rehabilitation may be experiencing symptoms or complications related to one or more of the following:
Lymphedema: Lymphedema is the accumulation of lymphatic fluid that causes swelling in the body's tissues. It's most often found in the arms or legs, but can also affect the face, neck, trunk, genitalia and abdomen. There is no cure for lymphedema, but early intervention and management enable most patients to lead normal lives.
Deconditioning chronic fatigue/weakness: Cancer treatments can be taxing on the body and patient’s can suffer from a feeling of being "run down," making it difficult to participate in their daily routine. Burke experts can help minimize this feeling and enable patients to engage in their usual activities as much as possible.
Muscle pain/joint pain: Oncologic treatment can cause a wide variety of body pains, including those stemming from muscles and joints. Our team of experts can help get these symptoms under control.
Gait and balance issues: Either as a direct result of cancer, or as a secondary response to treatment, gait and balance deficits are common for patients. Regardless of the cause, Burke specialists can aid in improvement and recovery, thereby improving safety and independence.
