Consultation, Screening and Recommendations
At Beaumont, from the time of diagnosis, the Cancer Survivorship Program brings patients and health care providers together to promote optimized health and healing of mind, body and spirit through integrative practices and education before, during and after cancer treatment.
Physical therapists can perform screens and evaluations soon after a cancer diagnosis to create an individualized treatment and exercise plan.
Therapists work closely with oncology nurse navigators and physicians at the multidisciplinary clinics and Cancer Centers. Multidisciplinary clinics bring the entire team together to manage and coordinate care for each patient.
Exercise & Wellness
Overseen by a clinician, and promotes fun, fitness, function and friendship for people before, during or after cancer treatment.
Pre-habilitation and Breast Cancer Survivor Surveillance
Pre-habilitation includes activities directed to decreasing the likelihood of or preventing some anticipated physical problems, such as decreased strength and range of motion, decreased tissue flexibility, lymphedema, chronic fatigue and urinary and fecal incontinence or urgency.
Breast cancer survivors can meet with a physical therapist to proactively find ways to reduce physical impacts of breast cancer.
