These therapies allow you to move through your day with less pain. Physical therapy helps you gain strength and flexibility. Lymphedema therapy relieves abnormal swelling in your arms and legs. These are just a few examples of the many cancer rehabilitation therapies we offer.
We integrate alternatives to standard medical treatments, including Reiki and acupuncture, with traditional care. These treatments unlock the body’s force of energy to promote healing.
We prescribe medications that put a stop to the pain. Medications may include drugs that decrease swelling.
We deliver treatments directly to the source of the pain using a needle. Your care may include injecting substances that block the brain’s pain signals (nerve block).
