REHABILITATION

Oncology Rehabilitation

There is now a huge body of research demonstrating the effectiveness of appropriately prescribed exercise for patients undergoing, or recovering from, oncology treatment. 

Western Integrated Health combines elements of Aerobic Exercise, targeted Strength & Mobility training and Pacing Strategies to provide the best possible outcomes for oncology patients who often have complex Exercise requirements.

We understand well the effects oncology medications and surgery have on our patients and are experts at prescribing exercise that is safe and appropriate. Our oncology rehabilitation programs are available as individual appointments and group classes.

Exercise is safe for almost all patients diagnosed with cancer, and is associated with the following benefits:

  • Reduced pain and disability from cancer related surgery

  • Improved survival outcomes

  • Improved mental health

  • Improved delivery of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy medications to tumour cells

  • Increased sensitivity of tumour cells to chemotherapy and radiotherapy

  • Improved bone density

  • Improved strength and mobility

  • Reduced nausea and fatigue

  • Reduced social isolation
