Cancer Survivor Exercise Program

Cancer treatment can lead to a variety of symptoms like fatigue, nausea and depression, as well as more seriousĀ  problems such as cardiotoxicity, a common side effect of chemotherapy. As a leader in rehabilitation therapy, we offer individualized prescriptive exercise to alleviate treatment-related side effects and improve cardiovascular function and pulmonary endurance. Led by our certified oncology exercise therapist, we work closely with cancer survivors to design a program specific to their needs. This integrative cancer therapy is the first program of its kind in Polk County and focuses on one goal –combating the negative effect of cancer treatment with supervised therapeutic exercise for a more positive quality of life.
