Here in Port Macquarie we at PhyxYou are lucky enough to be a part of the EMPOWER program, a program that aims at assisting people through their cancer journey.
Cancer experts are calling for exercise to be prescribed to every cancer patient, and we couldn’t agree more. Exercise is safe for people with cancer, and if the effects of exercise could be formed into a pill, it would be prescribed to every cancer patient worldwide.
Patients who exercise regularly will experience fewer and less severe side effects from cancer treatments. It also places you at a lower relative risk of cancer recurrence and dying from cancer.
Did you know at PhyxYou we have our own Exercise and Cancer specialist, who is undertaking his Masters Degree in Medical Exercise Oncology?
The EMPOWER program offers 2 sessions with our Exercise Physiologist, as well as the opportunity to be a part of an individual group class, that will allow yourself to exercise in a social and safe environment.
Exercise medicine as part of routine cancer care not only has the potential to change people’s lives but to also save money. People with cancer who exercise have lower medical expenses and spend less time away from work.
