Cancer Rehabilitation Program

Cancer Survivorship

TRAQ PROGRAM® Cancer Rehabilitation

At Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center, we are dedicated to helping cancer survivors function at the highest level possible. Cancer treatment can be very toxic and often causes significant pain, fatigue and disability for survivors. Through our TRAQ Program® (Training & Recovery For Achieving Quality of life), our goal is to minimize these side effects and to encourage cancer survivors to have the best quality of life possible. The TRAQ Program® provides patients with coordinated cancer rehabilitation supported by a comprehensive team of clinicians and providers.

As a TRAQ Program® patient, you will receive comprehensive cancer rehabilitation treatment to improve the symptoms affecting your daily function and quality of life. These may include fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, joint stiffness, limb swelling (lymphedema), weakness, memory problems, balance and issues with speaking or swallowing.

Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can harm your health and cause serious medical problems that interfere with daily function and well-being. Survivors are commonly plagued with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. When evaluating you, in addition to focusing on your conditions and symptoms, we take into consideration your:

  • Diet
  • Sleep issues
  • Existing pain
  • Endurance and strength
  • Exercise habits

A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic and so can life-saving treatments. We take these factors into account knowing the importance they have on your physical healing.
