Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada and will affect 2 out of 5 Canadians. If you have not been affected by cancer, you likely know someone who has, whether it is a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker.
Being diagnosed with cancer is an emotional time for the patient and their families. Fortunately, there are numerous organizations, health care providers and researchers dedicated to learning more about treatment and providing support for patients living with cancer.
Physiotherapists are involved in improving the lives of cancer patients and are there to help you maintain your strength, physical function and mobility, during and after cancer treatment. Physiotherapists can help you manage fatigue and manage the physical changes to maximize your recovery.
