Helping cancer survivors take the next step.

At Highline Physical Therapy, we help cancer survivors take the next step by helping to rebuild your endurance and stamina. Our goal is to improve your energy and strength allowing you to do every day activities with more ease and less fatigue.

Overcome Fatigue and Rebuilding Endurance

One of the most common side effects of cancer treatments is fatigue. Cancer fatigue is different than ordinary tiredness. With cancer fatigue you can feel tired despite a good night’s rest. This loss in stamina and endurance can make simple activities such as concentrating or walking to the mailbox challenging.

What Will Treatment Include?

Your program begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your strength, endurance, range of motion, fatigue and pain levels. Our therapists will also assess for any unique physical impairments that may have developed from the cancer and its treatment. We will then develop and guide you through an individualized program tailored to meet your personal goals.

Our cancer rehab program lasts 4-12 weeks as needed and includes the following:

  • Stretching and range of motion exercises
  • Gradual strengthening
  • Gradual cardiovascular reconditioning
  • Education in the modification of daily
  • Routines to self-manage fatigue

Your Final Steps to Independence

Once you have completed the program, you can continue independently at home, at a local health club, at one of our offices, or at one of the exercise programs offered at the cancer center.
