Cancer Rehabilitation Services of Texas

Cancer Rehabilitation Services of Texas provides specialized physical therapy and lymphedema services.

Lymphedema is a side effect of cancer treatment. It occurs after lymph nodes are surgically removed or are damaged during radiation treatments, when a tumor slows normal fluid drainage. While lymphedema is caused by cancer treatments, it may not occur until years after treatment. Our specialists can assess your risk, develop strategies to treat the lymphedema, and use compression garments to minimize the effects of lymphedema.

Our rehab team can also assist with other side effects caused by cancer treatment, including:

  • Gait improvement
  • Fall and balance dysfunction
  • Decreased functional mobility of your upper or lower extremities
Currently, Cancer Rehabilitation Services are offered at Texas Breast Specialists-Austin.
