WHY IS PRESCRIBED REHABILITATION AND EXERCISE IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE DURING AND AFTER CANCER TREATMENTS?
“Cancer patients would be shocked if they knew just how much of a benefit physical activity could have on their recovery and long term health, in some cases reducing the chances of having to go through the gruelling ordeal of treatment all over again.” Prof Rod MacLeod, Senior Staff Specialist Hammond Care and Conjoint Professor in Palliative Care at University of Sydney.
