WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Our Exercise Physiologist at LIME is a degree-qualified health professional who can prescribe exercise to help treat many different conditions. Each tailor-made exercise program is appropriate (not too difficult and not too easy), enjoyable and evidence-based. Exercise Physiologist's can use a huge variety of modalities to help but what they choose to do will depend on each individual’s preference. There is an enormous body of research to support the need to exercise to prevent, manage and recover from illness. Being physically active is so good for you mentally, emotionally and physically!
PILATES, WALKING AND WEIGHT TRAINING
Everyone will walk away with a clear plan that is guided towards physical freedom. If you are not accustomed to being physically active, then adhering to a program will be challenging but so rewarding. Learning how to self-manage and progress forwards is only just part of the education provided. This is not for you if you are after a quick fix as changing lifestyle habits is for the long term!
If you are currently undergoing, or recovering from treatment then you know that you need to exercise, but often that is easier said than done. There are so many barriers to exercise for people in normal life, but adding side effects of treatment makes it even more complex! What many people don’t understand is that exercise can reduce the severity of many side effects, improve adherence to chemotherapy protocols and maintain body health despite the pressures of treatment. All these elements can improve long-term survival.
If you are looking for physical activity to compliment your medical treatment, then seeing an Exercise Physiologist who specialises in cancer survivorship is crucial for your quality of life.
