Living well beyond cancer
Our role as therapists is to help survivors maximize whole functional performance, both physically and emotionally. Cancer and its treatment lead to changes in physical, cognitive, and emotional health.These changes often leave little energy or desire for the activities of daily living others take for granted. At Heath Quest, our therapists use proven methods that strengthen physically, while supporting overall emotional health, allowing the body optimal opportunity to recover.
Many survivors will benefit from our individualized interventions delivered by our STAR Clinician Certified rehabilitation professionals. STAR Certified Clinicians address the unique health and quality-of-life issues of cancer survivors who are undergoing treatment or living with its aftermath.
