Leaders in Physiotherapy and Physio-led Exercise
Fact: Research has shown that exercise can significantly decrease
the chance of recurrence among cancer patients!
Inner Strength Bayside has supported many brave women and men in their quest to conquer cancer. For many years, clinic director and Physiotherapist, Luci Minogue has taken a special interest in cancer rehabilitation, being the first Pinc provider in Victoria. She delivers Pinc (for women) and Steel (for men) Programs as well as Next Steps to women and men diagnosed with cancer, helping them regain their physical strength, improve their body confidence and incorporate exercise into their lifestyle.
The Pinc and Steel Programs are a complementary blend of clinical pilates style exercises, physiotherapy, massage, stretching and breathing techniques. Pinc and Steel help improve quality of life for cancer survivors and aid to reduce the side effects of treatment.
Next Steps is a group exercise program for men and women who have finished their main cancer treatment and want to take the next steps on their road to recovery. Each class combines the very best pilates,
yoga and cardio exercises for improving your health and fitness. It is suitable after any type of cancer surgery or treatment and accommodates all ages, fitness levels and mobility.
Pinc & Steel
Pinc & Steel Cancer Rehabilitation and Next Steps programs accommodate all fitness levels and are suitable for anyone recovering from cancer to help improve quality of life and reduce the side effects of treatment such as fatigue, pain and muscle wasting.
A one hour long initial assessment is required prior to starting, which may be followed by several individual half hour sessions, often in our studio. Options after these individual sessions are to either continue individually or join a Group Physiotherapy or Next Steps class.
Please refer to www.au.pincandsteel.com or contact us for further information. Funding is available for Next Steps and can be applied for via the pinc and steel website. Other sessions are claimable on private health or else with medicare if you have an EPC referral from your GP.
