Introducing Senior Chartered Physiotherapist Emily Smyth who has recently started working with us at Mount Merrion Chartered Physiotherapy.
Our services include Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates, Pre and Postnatal Care, long term Injury Rehabilitation and now the PINC (for women) and STEEL (for men) Cancer Rehabilitation Programs offered by Emily who has undergone specialised training.
PINC & STEEL was developed by the Cancer Rehabilitation Trust of Australia and has been the pioneering force behind the cancer rehabilitation movement in New Zealand and Australia since 2005.
It is aimed at women and men at any stage of their cancer treatment. We focus on ensuring patients can be active throughout their treatment by addressing any musculoskeletal problems which may be limiting their ability to exercise and by educating them on the importance of maintaining activity levels. Staying active during cancer treatment has been shown to help alleviate or prevent physical impairments, reduces pain, fatigue, depression, sleep disturbances and other symptoms commonly reported during cancer treatment.
Research suggests that exercise has a positive effect on not only the symptoms associated with cancer treatment but also has been shown to have positive effects on overall outcomes. Recent evidence suggests that exercise can reduce the risk of recurrence and mortality in breast cancer by up to 30-40%.
Please give us a call on 01 2834303 and to leave a message for Emily contact you at a time which suits to discuss the benefits of the programme.
