Cancer Rehabilitation Physiotherapy In Bath
There is a huge body of growing evidence to support the need for physiotherapy at every stage of a person’s cancer diagnosis, but unfortunately there are still very few specialised services available. At Physioimpulse we believe that patients can still have active lifestyles but need the right tailored support and programme to do so.

However, there is now a considerable amount of evidence to support patients to safely exercise before, during and after their treatment. Exercise is now being viewed by many as the fourth line of cancer treatment (http://theconversation.com/every-cancer-patient-should-be-prescribed-exercise-medicine-95440).

There are many benefits to Cancer Rehab including:
