Are there any people here that have experience treating patients post tongue cancer treatments? I am treating one woman right now and seem to be hitting a plateau. I would love to discuss other treatment options with someone who has experience with this population. A woman reached out to me from Beaufort, SC asking if I knew anyone who could help treat her post tongue cancer treatments. She has not had any care due to covid and limited resources, so if anyone knows a PT/OT/SLP that would be willing to help her, I would appreciate the contact.
Does anyone have experience or thoughts on the Koya Medical Dayspring? Someone asked me about it but I’m not too familiar. Thanks in advance!
Please share this to your colleagues/ Patients. Thank you.
Any literature on TENS with cancer and assisting bowel and bladder function? TIA!
The Oncology Section's very own Steve Wechsler recognized by the APTA as an Emerging Leader! Congratulations Steve Wechsler
