Forté Rehabilitation and Wellness Center provides Physical Therapists for the Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center based in San Antonio, Texas. Methodist cancer care rehabilitation is a comprehensive oncology rehabilitation center providing rehabilitation to patients with a cancer diagnosis. We have specialist Physical Therapists that are focused on providing rehabilitation to patients in any phase of their cancer care from diagnosis through post-treatment survivorship.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF FORTE REHABILITATION AND WELLNESS CENTER
Forté Rehabilitation and Wellness Center was founded in 2002 by Rachel Fey-Larsen, PT as Forté Physical Therapy, a small one-room clinic that answered the growing need for management of lymphedema, a common consequence of breast cancer treatment. Rachel quickly recognized that these patients had many cancer-related physical problems that would also benefit from rehabilitation, so in 2006, she expanded to Forté Rehabilitation and Wellness Center, the first comprehensive oncology rehabilitation center of its kind in South Texas. In June 2022, we partnered with Oncology Rehab and Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, to staff the Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center. Together, we are a South Texas leader in oncology rehabilitation helping over 480 patients annually recover from the physical effects of cancer and treatment.

WHO WE ARE
Forte Rehabilitation and Wellness Center is the premier oncology rehabilitation center in South Texas. Our team of skilled therapists and staff share one common goal: to help cancer patients move better, feel better, and be better.
Before chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, Forte's prehab services establish a rehabilitation plan to prepare you for the prescribed interventions and establish methods to prevent the onset or reduce the severity of side effects.
During and after chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, Forte helps identify and treat the complex medical conditions that may arise such as joint and muscle pain, neuropathy, loss of motion, balance problems, lymphedema, cancer related fatigue, sexual concerns, and incontinence.
Forte therapists are familiar with the different treatment regimens for various tumors sites and help patients recover from cancers such as breast cancer, head and neck cancers, pelvic and GI cancers, blood and lymphatic cancers, CNS cancers, sarcomas, and melanomas.
Forté Rehabilitation & Wellness center is dedicated to improving the quality of life for cancer patients by providing excellent comprehensive physical rehabilitation to individuals who are suffering from cancer or the effects of cancer treatment.
