Helping you during and after Cancer
Deconditioning is not uncommon during and after a cancer diagnosis. A one size treatment plan doesn’t fit all. Everyone’s cancer is different and everyone’s body reacts in a different ways, which is why an individualised rehabilitation plan is important.
Cancer rehabilitation and exercise can reduce side effects of the disease and debilitating cancer treatments, and can improve functional ability, quality of life and ultimately, survival.
We understand that while surviving cancer can be difficult, recovery can also become difficult if your body is deconditioned. We know some clients can find it difficult to complete certain exercise programs due to pain or fatigue levels. It is not uncommon to need regular rest breaks or exercise modifications on your road to recovery. Therefore, it is recommended you listen to your body and find a way you can keep moving and being active in any way possible to optimise your recovery.
Exercise is a safe and effective evidence-based intervention to counter the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment.
