Our “In the Pink” Canberra program is a new initiative at Back in Strength. It is designed to help women gently recondition after undergoing surgery for cancer and during/following chemotherapy or radiation therapy. It doesn’t matter what type of cancer, you are welcome to attend our clinic. Exercise has shown to be extremely important following cancer diagnoses – to help combat side effects and it may even impact survival rates. However, when you are feeling tired or unwell, it can be hard to find the motivation. It can also be difficult to know what the best type of exercise to commence with is. That’s where we can help! Our program is delivered by physiotherapists in Canberra, and provide safe and effective regimes to maximise recovery, regain strength and endurance. We understand that your endurance and stamina may be affected, and we aim to provide a gentle environment to aid your recovery. If you can’t exercise for an hour, you can stretch, meditate quietly or even have a cup of tea with other participants.
