This morning, Northwest Medical Specialties announced that it will bring the ReVital cancer rehabilitation program to Tacoma and Puyallup clinics. ReVital is a program developed by Select Medical that addresses pain, fatigue, neuropathy, and more through physical therapy.

“There is mounting research that tells us that keeping patients fit, maintaining strength and cardiovascular health allows treatment to be given more safely with faster recovery back to health,” Dr. Frank Senecal, medical oncologist at Northwest Medical Specialties, said in a statement. “ReVital is a great program for our patients, it is convenient, comfortable and effective.”

ReVital-certified physical therapists have completed an up-to-date and comprehensive oncology rehabilitation education program. Help provided by specialists like them may aid many of the 60 percent of people affected by cancer who have at least one physical or functional issue because of their treatment.

The collaboration between Select Medical and Northwest Medical Specialties brings ReVital to its ninth market in the U.S., right here in the South Sound.
