The Physiotherapist on the health care team can help you maintain your physical fitness during treatment. The Physiotherapist will see you soon after you are admitted to the Inpatient Unit or at your request or the nurse's if you are in the Outpatient Unit. S/he will design an exercise and activity program based on your previous activity level and individual needs.
The Physiotherapist will regularly monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments to your fitness program. Treatment may also be provided for any conditions or injuries that would normally need physiotherapy intervention, such as respiratory or musculoskeletal problems.
