Cancer Rehabilitation 

Cancer treatments are better than ever before. But cancer treatments also can be toxic and can impact a person's physical, mental and emotional wellness. After treatment, many cancer survivors report having a physical impairment that keeps them from getting back to the life they had before.

The Center for Rehabilitation and Sport Medicine at Beverly Hospital is proud to be certified by the STAR Program (Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation) for our cancer rehabilitation services. The STAR Program is a nationally recognized program designed to improve the lives of people experiencing side effects from cancer treatment.

We offer coordinated cancer rehabilitation from a team of specially trained providers, including physical therapists, dietitians, occupational therapists and others who specialize in the unique needs of cancer survivors.

Benefits of Cancer Rehabilitation

Cancer rehabilitation can help with a wide variety of treatment-related conditions and their symptoms, including:

  • Pain
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Shoulder problems
  • Balance and gait problems
  • Memory and concentration issues
  • Swallowing and speech problems
  • Lymphedema (swelling of the arms or legs that can be caused by removal or damage to lymph nodes)

The STAR cancer rehabilitation program is designed to help any who has problems they did not have before their cancer diagnosis, especially if these problems interfere with their quality of life or their ability to function the way they did before.

You will need a referral from your doctors in order to participate. We are happy to work with you to determine your insurance coverage for our services.
