Rehab Of The Pacific: National Specialists Helping Cancer Patients With Rehab

Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific is the only site in the nation with Cancer Rehab Specialists certified from the University of Northern Colorado.  They are trained in a new protocol to help cancer patients.  We talked to Cheri Teranishi-Hashimoto, Program Director of Women's Health and Cancer to find out more information.

Teranishi-Hashimoto let us know that they are the only medical rehabilitation hospital in Hawai'i; they provide comprehensive care for patients suffering from neurological issues (such as a stroke or traumatic brain injuries), orthopedic, spinal cord injuries and other debilitative diseases. At their hospital in Nuuanu and outpatient clinics on O'ahu and Hawai'i Island, REHAB's doctors, therapists and staff use innovative, cutting-edge rehabilitation best practices and technology to help patients find optimal health and independence.

In the interview she also shares about their specialists certified by the University of Northern Colorado and their level 2 certification.

Teranishi-Hashimoto  also shared some of the exercises that people can do at home?
