Feeling weak after cancer treatment?

You can return to the things you love to do

Cancer and its treatments can leave you feeling weak and unable to enjoy the things you love to do.

Don’t let cancer hold you back. Cancer rehab can help you live with your best life. Live better live stronger.

Do you feel your walking and balance has been affected?

Maybe the odd slip, trip or near miss or not feeling comfortable on uneven surfaces?

Chemotherapy can cause weakness, balance loss and risk of falls. Cancer rehab can help you restore you balance, help with your walking and put the spring back in your step.

Feeling fatigued after cancer treatment?

While it may sound counter intuitive, exercising can help alleviate cancer-related fatigue. We can help you develop an exercise program that is safe and effective for you. We can help you with coping strategies and energy management.

Diagnosed with cancer or undergoing treatment? Don’t quit exercising. Exercise not only boosts physical and mental health, Data from the American College of Sports Medicine and 15 other international organisations published new guidelines for people with cancer. For the first time, scientists have published exercise guidelines for people with cancer. The scientists wrote out a formal exercise prescription for those undergoing exercise treatment.

We can help guide you and develop an exercise programme that is safe and effective for you and fits into your lifestyle.

Did you know that 2 in 5 suffer from depressive symptoms with 70% needing emotional support?

We know that many people find the period following active cancer treatment extremely tough. It can be difficult and challenging to transition back into everyday life.

Often support is needed to regain a sense of wellbeing and return to a desired quality of life.

Group classes have been shown to impact the physical and emotional wellbeing of participants and be appositive next step on the road to recovery.

Start where you are and do what you can!

At what point should I see a cancer rehab physiotherapist?

Pre op: we can help you prepare your body for surgery and treatment. Post op: we can help with scar management, joint mobilizing, breathing techniques and provide reassurance and advice to help you maximize your recovery.

During treatment: we know from research that being active during treatment can decrease side effects and increase completion rates for treatments. Keeping active during this hard time can increase functional outcomes including back to work sooner!

Fitness/ Survivorship phase: We all know we need to exercise but where do you start? How much? What should I feel? What can happen? The door to exercise and rehab after cancer never closes! Even 10 years later.

There is a dose response relationship to exercise- the better quality exercise people do, the more pronounced benefit you get. There have been large studies with 1,000s of volunteers so we know now how exercise influences cancer growth and its effect on the body.

Can I exercise if I have life limiting diagnosis or advanced cancer?

Yes! Prescribed exercises can help your function, strength and stamina.

Living well is critically important. Very often in this phase you can be uncertain of how much and what type of physical activity.

Research recommends exercise at all stages and can support independence, prevent further health complications and help people “live well” for as long as possible
