Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Physical Therapist David Campbell will speak about the role of exercise and rehabilitation in the cancer patient’s care plan at CRMC’s Cancer Support Group on Thursday, Jan. 19, from 12 to 1 p.m. in the hospital’s Clinic Conference Room.
Campbell will also provide an overview of cancer related fatigue, the role of regular mobility and exercise, and edema and the use of compression. He will also share information about the rehabilitation resources available at CRMC, what rehabilitation does, and how to obtain a referral.
The lead Physical Therapist of CRMC’s Transitional Care Rehabilitation Team since 2014, Campbell has extensive knowledge in many aspects of the clinical field, with a special interest in the complexities of geriatric care and stroke recovery.
