Exercise medicine is relatively inexpensive, highly effective and has no side effects. Our specialty is tailored exercise medicine assessment and prescription for people with cancer as this improves quality of life, reduces treatment side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, improves surgical outcomes and has been demonstrated in quality research to actually enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy – ultimately extending survival.
Specialised knowledge and experience in exercise medicine for cancer management.
