Cancer Rehabilitation is a process that assists the cancer patient to obtain maximal physical, social, psychological and vocational functioning within the limits created by the disease and its resulting treatment. Rehabilitation can be preventative, restorative, supportive and palliative. Studies show that greater levels of exercise are associated with a reduction in cancer related death by nearly 50%. People who exercise regularly may be reducing their risk of mortality by nearly half. Exercise may also reduce the risk of cancer recurrence by up to 35%.
Helping people to avoid inactivity is the first piece of the puzzle and from there trying to return to normal daily activities as soon as possible. Getting the ball rolling is by far the hardest part and where most people can use a helping hand from a therapist.
