Exercise should be prescribed to ALL cancer patients as a part of ROUTINE care.
If you are receiving treatment for Cancer or have undergone treatment in the past and you are not currently achieving the minimum of 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise along with 2-3 resistance exercise sessions per week , let our PINC cancer rehabilitation Physiotherapist help get you started.
All cancer treatments have an impact on the body. Our role as Physiotherapists will be to advise on what can be done to help overcome the impact that the treatments have had on the body and maximize recovery.
Just some of the reasons why exercise is important:-
- Exercise after a cancer diagnosis is associated with a reduction in cancer related death by up to 44%
- Exercise may reduce the risk of cancer recurrence by up to 35%
- Exercise is the number one treatment for the most common and debilitating side effects of cancer
- Emerging data to support that exercise during cancer treatments can improve the effectiveness and completion rates of chemotherapy
