Cancer Rehab

Cancer is a disease of the body's cells and can affect many different parts of the body. The most common cancers in Australia are prostate, breast, bowel, melanoma and lung cancer.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a large amount of evidence supporting exercise for the prevention of cancer, and also as an adjunct to cancer treatment and recovery. Physiotherapists and exercise physiologists are experts in exercise prescription and work with patients and their doctors to provide an individualised exercise program to assist patients throughout their cancer journey.
The 2018 American College of Sports Medicine Round Table states that exercise is associated with a lower risk of developing cancer and improved survival after a cancer diagnosis.

In Australia, a referral is not required to be able to see an allied health professional, although it is often helpful for you to bring as much information about your health history as well as any specific medical or surgical details that relate to your reason for seeking help. There are a few exceptions to this, where you will need to obtain a referral from your GP prior to attending our clinic. This includes:

  • Workers Compensation Claims
  • CTP (Third Party) Road Accident Claims
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Claims
  • Medicare Claims (e.g. Chronic Disease Management referral)
