The OSUCCC – James oncology rehabilitation department specialists provide cancer patients with expert, innovative physical rehabilitation services in a caring, supportive environment with internationally recognized medical expertise, education and research.
There is no such thing as a routine cancer, and every person’s disease is different, with individually unique genes and molecules driving that disorder. At the OSUCCC – James, our oncology rehabilitation specialists — a nationally recognized team of physical therapists — reach across medical disciplines to design the very best rehabilitation plan and therapies to proactively target each patient’s specific needs and improve that person's quality of life after cancer.
All OSUCCC – James physical therapists are specially trained in lymphedema treatment, and many are certified by the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA). Lymphedema occurs when body tissues swell after cancer treatment, and the condition can be painful.
These certified physical therapists and lymphedema experts work with patients on many posttreatment challenges, including swelling, impaired mobility, muscle and joint strength, range of motion in joints and tissues, endurance, fatigue and energy, and overall well-being after cancer.
