The Cancer Physio Welcomes You!

"I hope that in 5 years time every cancer patient is provided cancer rehab and exercise as medicine as an essential part of their treatment. All people with cancer benefit from a clinically led rehab plan to optimize their health through out the cancer journey! This website offers more than just a "book now" link; learn and empower yourself through video and blog posts!

 

If physiotherapists, oncologists and other clinicians collaborate to support patients with rehab access, we can influence survivorship! I've witnessed first hand the impact timely rehab support and education both allowing patients to gain agency over their disease and lessen the symptom burden. A rehab plan can help patients to better manage the effects of surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation; quite simply it can give patients a sense of power in a powerless time. Rehab plans can decrease hospital stays and better lives. Cancer rehab works! Reach out to start today.
