We Are Committed To Helping You Reach Optimal Recovery
A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic, so are the life-saving treatments that are required to treat the disease. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can cause serious medical problems that may interfere with daily functioning and wellbeing. Recovering patients are frequently plagued with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression in the aftermath of treatment.
Rhode Island Rehabilitation’s oncology trained therapists offer effective physical rehabilitation treatments that encourage faster recovery times, reduction in pain, and an improved overall quality of life. It is important to note that addressing the devastating psychological and emotional after effects of cancer are critical to ensuring mental health and wellbeing.

We Can Help
Whether you are just beginning treatment, already completed your cancer treatment, or are experiencing lasting effects from unresolved issues, there are rehabilitative treatments that you can benefit from. Our program is open to everyone, no matter the prognosis, stage of cancer, or phase of recovery.
Newly diagnosed patients may want to increase their strength and endurance and work to prevent future medical problems. Survivors living with cancer as a chronic disease may require help to manage treatment related conditions. Individuals who are cured, or in remission, will benefit from treatment plans that focus on boosting the immune system to encourage long-term healing in the aftermath of the disease.
We Are Committed To Bringing You The Highest Level Of Care After Cancer
In recent years, many have finally begun to understand the importance of creating rehabilitation programs that serve patients post-Cancer treatment. This phase of survivorship is critical in an individual’s ability to move from surviving, to thriving. RI Rehab’s oncology program emphasizes a tailored plan of care to address the individual health needs of each recovering patient. We want to help you to get back on track and return to previous activity levels - whether it is at work, home, or in recreational and social environments.
When Evaluating Your Needs We Look At The “Big Picture”
Rather than using a problem-oriented approach that tackles each health issue as it arises, RI Rehab proactively address the full spectrum of post-cancer care. When evaluating a patient, we focus on health conditions and symptoms, diet, sleep issues, existing pain, endurance, strength, exercise habits, and emotional outlook, as all of these factors have an important effect on physical and emotional healing.
