Great information for cancer survivors ๐Ÿ™‚

Investing in your health after a cancer diagnosis is very important.

Exercise rehabilitation is one of the best medicines that people diagnosed with cancer can take in addition to their standard cancer treatments. The cost of exercise rehabilitation is unfortunately not funded in many places but the benefits of getting this support early can not be overstated.

There is a vast amount of research backing this up. People who take their exercise medicine regularly:
โ‡๏ธ experience fewer treatment-related side effects
โ‡๏ธ have a lower relative risk of dying from their cancer, and their cancer coming back.

New research also reveals the annual medical expenses for people with colorectal, breast and prostate cancer who exercise regularly are ~36% lower than those who donโ€™t exercise.

โ†‘ exercise = โ†“ healthcare expenditure and โ†“ unnecessary disability

To help people get the exercise rehabilitation support they need PINC & STEEL has certified cancer rehab Physiotherapists available. They can design a safe and effective exercise program for you to do at home to reduce costs as much as possible and offer group exercise classes after an initial assessment which again reduces costs.

Our dedicated team of Pinc&Steel Cancer Rehab Physios and OTs, are working hard during this extraordinary time to provide frontline care at hospitals, while others have reorganised their outpatient services and private clinics so they can continue to provide vital support via Telehealth.

Although many of our clinic doors are closed, we are still very open and available to support people through online consultations.

๐ŸŸขHow does Telehealth work?

โžก๏ธ The online consultations enable you to discuss your symptoms, questions and concerns with a Cancer Rehab Therapist in the comfort of your own home, eliminating travel time and risk of infection.

โžก๏ธ Your Physio can assess, diagnosis and treat online. They will ask a series of questions about your symptoms (condition) and safely guide you through a series of tests and movements to diagnose your condition.

โžก๏ธ They can develop a personalised recovery plan and show you what you can do to help manage your symptoms. This may also include how other people you live with can help and support you with your rehab.

โžก๏ธ It is a really vital way to continue with your rehab and not lose the gains you have made. Your Physio can check you are doing your exercises correctly and progress them. This is so important from a physical and mental health point of view.

โžก๏ธ Physical impairments that might be relatively easily addressed if detected early can become very difficult to treat and costly if they have progressed over weeks and months. Therefore, it is important if you are worried about something (for example, something is painful or doesn't move well), you make use of Telehealth services.

๐Ÿ”…Weโ€™ve had wonderful feedback already from people using our Telehealth services regarding their gratitude in someone being available and able to reassure them.

We are proud to promote the first ever Worldwide โ€˜Cancer Rehab Awareness Week Campaign'

There are so many people missing out on cancer rehab services due to a real lack of awareness.
This has to change to minimise the risk of preventable long term disability and suffering for anyone affected by cancer.

The objectives of this week are to:
โ˜€๏ธ Raise awareness about the importance of physical and mental cancer recovery,

โ˜€๏ธ Promote help seeking behaviours and physical and emotional well-being practices, and

โ˜€๏ธ Prevent the risk of preventable long term disability and suffering for people affected by cancer

The Cancer Rehab Awareness Week is scheduled for the 25th April to 2nd May 2020.
The side-effects of cancer and cancer treatment are real but often itโ€™s only the survivors and their loved ones who know the ongoing difficulties cancer treatment can bring.

Difficulties that can be helped, if only people knew!

No one should be left to rehabilitate from the affects of treatment alone.

To learn more about the campaign visit

With your help we can help more people liveMORE and fearLESS

Today is #worldcancerday

This World Cancer Day I want to acknowledge that the struggle after a cancer diagnosis is real. Many men and women our we look after, tell us about their struggle and the terrible feeling of loss of control.
You can't control your diagnosis, your test results or treatment side effects. You may even feel like you've lost control over your work, finances and the reactions you receive from loved ones.

Pinc & Steelโ€™s Cancer Rehab Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists are dedicated to helping to reduce the struggle for people with any type of cancer.

We believe no one should face this struggle on their own.

"The Dear B***s book is a collection of intimate, courageous, and often hilarious letters from women of all walks of life who have undergone surgery due to breast cancer or BRCA. It brings the conversations together to share b**b wisdom, inspire healing and celebrate the incredible breast cancer community"

#AcceleratePhysio #RunStrong

Read the story on my running evolution and the key run set Iโ€™ve been using to facilitate change. My passion for endurance sport started with mountain running. Iโ€™ve raced almost every style of multi sport and triathlon since then and found myself choosing to dedicate to Ironman distance. Itโ€™s only been 18 months but Iโ€™ve always know that running a sub 2:40 marathon off the back of a swim and bike was where I needed to be. This is the key run session I have built on over the last few months and which earnt me a sub 8hours in Cairns
