Recent studies have proven the many benefits of Exercise treatment prior to, during and following cancer treatment.
These benefits include:
Reducing the rate of bone and muscle deterioration
Positively influencing quality of life
Reducing the risk of reoccurrence in some cancers such as breast and prostate
Positively influencing cognitive function and oxygen to the brain
Assisting in managing symptoms from treatment such as joint pain, peripheral neuropathy, nausea, lymphedema and fatigue
Assisting to prevent comorbidities such as Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease
Canfit Exercise Physiology offers a one on one personalised and supervised exercise prescription, focusing on assisting the patient prior to, during and after cancer treatment. Patients are educated on the benefits of exercise and activity with relevance to their particular diagnosis, treatment and health condition(s).
Patients are also educated and guided on the safe dosage of frequency, intensity, duration and type of exercise to participate in depending on their health history, side effects and physiological responses to treatment.
Consultations are held in the comfort and safety of the patient’s own home via either a home consultation or telehealth. Scheduling is developed around treatment cycles and predicted side effects.
