Head & Neck Cancer Rehabilitation

Head and Neck Cancer Rehab Atlantis Physical Therapy Torrance

The incidences of head and neck cancer are on the rise. The good news is treatment advances have led to increased survival rates. However, the need for comprehensive rehabilitation has never been greater.

Treatment is often radical and may compromise the patient’s appearance, function, and quality of life. The most common modalities of treatment, employed either singly or in combination, are chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Each treatment modality involves unique complications and compromises, many of which are amenable to rehabilitation techniques. Many of the side-effects of treatment necessitate long-term management and patient education for home exercise programs.

Michael Louis PT, himself a survivor of head and neck cancer, provides compassionate and comprehensive rehabilitation services for this unique patient population. With more than 30 years of experience, he is nationally recognized for myofascial release techniques that he has taught throughout the country.
