Get Ready for Treatment with ‘Prehab’
Meet with your cancer rehabilitation team early to set goals and plan for a successful recovery. Depending on your condition, your therapist may recommend simple exercises to build strength and endurance before chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. That’s because “prehab” or “prehabilitation”—rehabilitation before treatment—may help you recover more quickly.
CARE at Alamance Regional Lifestyle Center
At Alamance Regional Medical Center’s LifeStyle Center, join other cancer survivors for Cancer Associated Rehabilitation and Exercise (CARE). You’ll meet twice a week for about six months for a program that incorporates massage therapy, nutrition counseling and peer emotional support along with supervised exercise.
