  • Details

Designed for the busy practitioner, Cancer provides succinct coverage of the assessment and treatment of a multitude of rehabilitation issues as they uniquely affect cancer patients.

Broken into four sections with 66 alphabetically arranged topics, this go-to reference addresses the key concerns in cancer rehabilitation ranging from basic principles, exercise, and therapy interventions to acupuncture, massage, and end-of-life care. Primary conditions covered include bone marrow transplant, brain disease and tumors, hematologic cancer, metastatic bone disease, neurofibromatosis, and spinal cord compression. The largest section of the book is devoted to the myriad disease or treatment-related symptoms and medical issues endemic in the cancer population such as pain, anemia, anorexia, cognitive dysfunction, chemotherapy-related problems and radiation effects, lymphedema, fatigue, malnutrition, sleep disorders, spasticity, and much more.
