Cancer Rehabilitation

What is Cancer Rehabilitation?

Cancer Rehabilitation and exercise can reduce side effects of the disease and debilitating cancer treatments, and can improve functional ability, quality of life and ultimately, survival. Working with a certified Cancer Rehab Physiotherapist can greatly improve your outcomes and recovery following a cancer diagnosis.

How Active+ can help

We provide support for people following a cancer diagnosis, through PINC & STEEL cancer rehabilitation programmes, lymphoedema treatment, and group exercise sessions.

If people don't get rehabilitated after cancer it can affect their ability to work, their families, their physical, emotional and social wellbeing and their long-term health.

The PINC and STEEL programmes provide individualised, prescribed rehabilitation to women and men diagnosed with cancer; helping them heal as well as possible, and function at optimal levels through every stage of their cancer treatment and recovery. They are delivered by our certified Cancer Rehab Physiotherapists, and are specifically designed to help maximise recovery, regain physical and emotional strength, and improve body confidence and control.

Additional services

As well as the individual cancer rehabilitation programmes, in some areas we also offer PaddleOn stand up paddle boarding rehab classes, and Next Steps circuit fitness classes. We also have qualified Lymphedema Therapists, who help to control this problem through exercises, lymphedema massage, compressing garments, and specialised wrapping and taping of the affected body part.

These services can be privately funded, or depending on individual circumstances, may be able to be funded through the PINC and STEEL Cancer Rehab Trust, or through private medical insurance.
