Do I need to tell my oncologist if I’m receiving cancer rehabilitation?
Yes, just as your therapist should know if you have cancer. The oncologist and PTs or chiropractor will recommend some exercises to help you rebuild your strength and independence, however, some types of cancer and treatments won’t allow you to receive chiropractic treatment.
Does the therapy session hurt?
Cancer rehabilitation is intended to alleviate pain and help you manage the side effects of cancer treatment. Some patients can feel mild discomfort and soreness from the exercises, but it gets easier as they progress on therapy.
How do I prepare for cancer rehabilitation?
Your chiropractor or physical therapist will perform a physical evaluation and will ask you about your cancer treatment.
It's recommended to wear comfortable clothes like t-shirts, yoga pants, gym shorts, sports bra, and sneakers to make it easier to examine and facilitate the movement of the exercises.
How many sessions will I have?
The number of sessions will depend on the type of cancer and the patient's evolution. Your PT or chiropractor will discuss your treatment plan.
If I’m traveling, can I schedule one therapy session?
Yes, Medical Tourism chiropractors and physical therapists understand your specific needs, so you can schedule a therapy session and continue your exercises back at home.
