Cancer Rehab Services

    Wednesday, February 16th   10:00 a.m.

    Presented by Amy Sieczkowski, DPT, PT, OCS , Select Physical Therapy

    ReVital Cancer Rehab is a new specialty service provided by therapists at Select Physical Therapy.  This type of physical therapy focuses on the current and lasting side effects of cancer treatments.

    60-90% of patients with cancer, as well as survivors, have at least 1 impairment that physical therapy can address in order to improve quality of life.  Such impairments include joint pain, joint stiffness, fatigue, peripheral neuropathy, difficulty walking, balance concerns, falls (or fear of falling), and inability or difficulty in performing activities of daily living.

    Join Amy Sieczkowski, Select Physical Therapy Center Manager at the Norwich Clinic, to learn more on the ways physical therapy can help improve some side effects of cancer treatments.

    Please sign up at Reception if you will be attending.
