Qualification in Cancer and Exercise Rehabilitation
In the past it was assumed that the best advice to give anyone diagnosed with cancer was to rest as much as possible. However, research has shown that too much rest may result in loss of stamina, muscle tone and bone strength. As with other long-term conditions such as cardiac disease, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease it is time to provide cancer rehabilitation as part of a cancer care package and make a policy shift towards recommending physical activity during and after cancer treatment.
