Advanced rehabilitation services are part of your survivorship care at Health Quest.

Cancer treatments can be toxic, frequently resulting in significant pain, fatigue and a range of physical and neurological impairments. Among cancer survivors with impairments, 65 to 90 percent will need some type of rehabilitation.

That's where Health Quest Oncology Rehabilitation comes in. We offer a full spectrum of rehabilitation services to minimize cancer's effects and help improve your overall quality of life. Our treatment plans are evidence-based, personalized to your needs and provided by licensed personnel experienced in treating patients who have battled cancer, including:

  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Speech-language pathologists

Because we specialize in working with patients who have been treated for cancer, we understand what you've been through, and we strive to provide the excellent care that you deserve. Ask your physician if a referral to Health Quest Oncology Rehabilitation would be appropriate for you.

Insurance

In most cases, because professionals with board certifications and licenses in rehabilitation medicine are providing the service, Health Quest Oncology Rehabilitation is covered by insurance. As with all insurance issues, check with your carrier about coverage, deductibles and co-pays.

Customized rehabilitation based on your needs

Depending on your situation, you may receive one or a combination of these oncology rehabilitation services:

Physical therapy to strengthen your body and reduce pain and fatigue.

  • Occupational therapy to improve functional abilities. For survivors suffering from "chemo brain," neurocognitive rehabilitation focuses on improving concentration, attention, memory and organizational skills.
  • Speech pathology to assist head and neck cancer survivors with communication and swallowing difficulties. For patients with tracheo-esophageal puncture (TEP) following laryngectomy, speech can be restored with the use of a voice prosthesis. Health Quest is the only provider in the Hudson Valley to evaluate and fit voice prostheses for patients.
  • Nutritional counseling to help your body heal faster.
  • Lymphedema therapy led by certified lymphedema therapists who teach breast cancer survivors manual lymph drainage, compression, bandaging, skin care and exercise.Our two head and neck lymphedema therapists are among the few between Albany and New York City to provide this specialized therapy.
