Cancer Rehabiliation

Exercise is increasingly becoming recognised as an important treatment for the recovery and rehabilitation of cancer survivors.  In fact it is also helpful throughout treatment as well.

Our Physio and Exercise Physiologist are passionate about helping clients suffering with Cancer or helping those completing treatment get back into life.

 Cancer sufferers and survivors often present with muscle weakness, limitation of movement, and pain from surgery or treatment alone.  The equipment used in Pilates exercise allows the patient to lie on their back and relax to move.  The client can move slowly focusing on breath and increasing the strength of their muscles. The feedback from the equipment allows correct movement to be reintroduced to the body at any stage of treatment or recovery.

Benefits include:

  • improved muscular strength and endurance,
  • postural re-correction allowing better body awareness
  • increased range of motion
  • increased energy
  • better mood
