Cancer Rehabiliation at Total Physio Recent evidence has shown significant improvements in outcomes of patients who are physically active both during and after cancer treatment.

Some Interesting facts to note:

  • 70% of people who have cancer, have at least one other long term condition (Macmillan)
  • Rehabilitation programmes are provided for other chronic conditions, e.g. CHD, diabetes, COPD, have been shown to be effective (Hoffman et al. 2016)
  • A Nuffield Trust evaluation (2014) showed that 15 months after diagnosis, compared to a population of the same age/gender, people with cancer had:
    • 60% more A&E attendances,
    • 97% more emergency admissions
    • 50% more primary care contacts

Enhancing people’s physical rehabilitation aims to improve these statistics.

Here at Total Physio, we can assess individual patients’ needs while awaiting start of treatment, during treatment or post treatment.

We can design individualised programmes to help improve your health and functional ability.

Group exercise classes for cancer survivors will be starting in early 2019.
