Current research shows that exercise has significant benefits in the effectiveness of treatment for and in the recovery from cancer. We all know that exercise is good for us, but it is sometimes challenging to know where to start. This is especially the case when you may be going through treatments for cancer such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy. Everybody experiences these interventions differently and many people find they need some guidance adjusting to their new normal.
Whatever your journey, there are many benefits and safe ways to exercise before, during and after your cancer treatment. Contact our clinic today to discuss the options for education and guidance through exercising with Cancer
