What is cancer rehabilitation?

Cancer rehabilitation helps people regain strength, physical functioning and independence that they may have lost due to cancer and its treatment. Treatments for cancer typically include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and stem cell transplantation. The effects of these treatments can lead to significant impact on overall health and wellbeing. Common side effects include pain, fatigue, lymphedema, weakness, worry and anxiety, difficulty returning to work and difficulty getting back into life.

Current evidence show that cancer rehabilitation alleviates side effects and improves overall function and quality of life after cancer.

Cancer rehabilitation programs are best delivered by expert cancer allied health professionals who have in depth knowledge of current cancer treatment alongside the recovery process. Cancer Rehab Melbourne clinical staff have training training and experience with all types of cancer, cancer treatment, and cancer rehabilitiation research.
