Welcome to APTA Oncology

APTA Oncology advances physical therapist practice to maximize the lifelong health, well-being and function of persons affected by cancer and HIV.

Knowledge, Compassion, Practice, Results

APTA Oncology consists of professional physical therapists managing the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and cardiopulmonary rehabilitative needs of patients who are living with and beyond cancer and other chronic illnesses such as HIV.

Rehabilitation Oncology

Dr. Lisa Wood Magee and Dr. Stephen Wechsler present exciting findings about how cancer-related fatigue can result in physical impairments among those treated for cancer, and the need to address this through exercise aimed at large muscle groups of the lower extremity.

Tom Rosinski, PT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Oncologic Physical Therapy

My first job out of PT school was at a community hospital, seeing whatever diagnosis walked through the door. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to focus my practice, so this was a good fit for me at the time.
