- Physical Therapists
- Occupational Therapists

“We help people manage the effects of cancer throughout their entire journey. We have patients that come to us before surgery to get ready for treatment, but typically we have patients that come to us post-surgery, chemo or radiation,” says Tammy DeMeere, a Physical Therapist and Certified Lymphedema Therapist at RIM.
We help cancer patients and survivors:
- Improve strength and stamina
- Improve your bladder and bowel control
- Increase mobility and range of motion
- Improve swallowing
- Manage lymphedema
- Manage pain
- Improve balance
- Reach your maximum activity level
Cancer rehab is designed to meet the individual needs of each patient depending on their goals and type of cancer. Ask your doctor for a prescription for physical therapy.
