Prehabilitation In Cancer Treatment

Prehabilitation is the time period when the patient first gets diagnosed until a treatment really starts. It's an opportunity to really take the patients individually and optimize them physically, nutritionally and psychologically for getting them ready for the battle against cancer. Dr. Adrian Cristian, Cancer Rehabilitation Physiatrist with Miami Cancer Institute, explains these prehabilitation processes have a lot of benefits in the course of the diagnosis such as a better tolerance to side effects of the cancer treatment.
