Exercise Physiology and Cancer

For over seven years, MyEP has played an integral part of the Sunshine Coast Haematology & Oncology Clinic & the Genesis Care integrated Cancer centre in Buderim, where they lead the Rehabilitation Centre.

With over a decade of experience working with cancer patients from all stages, MyEP's exercise physiologists create customised exercise plans based on individual capabilities. Our Exercise Physiologists consider disease and treatment-related side effects, expected disease progression, overall health status, and other relevant factors to determine any necessary adjustments required.

Exercise Physiologists Specialising in Cancer

MyEP offers individual consultations and group sessions. You can choose to visit us at any of our clinics across the Sunshine Coast.

Exercise Physiologists who specialise in cancer provide advice, support and resources that are specific to each individual patient. An Exercise Physiologist will be able to prescribe and monitor an individualised exercise program to:

  • provide cancer-specific exercise education, advice and support to enhance the health and well-being of people with cancer
  • reduce the chance of developing new cancers and other diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis
  • improved fitness and strength to help you do everyday activities
  • reduced tiredness and fatigue
  • reduced distress, depression and anxiety
  • improved wellbeing that helps increase quality of life
  • help maintain bone health, build muscle and lose weight if necessary
  • understand the physical impact and side effects of cancer and cancer treatments and how to improve your physical health

Why Should I Exercise when I have Cancer?

Regardless of prior activity levels, people living with cancer can benefit from exercise in numerous ways. Regular exercise can significantly enhance quality of life outcomes, including reducing pain and fatigue while improving physical functioning.

Exercise has been established as an effective adjunct therapy for the management of cancer. Epidemiological evidence supports the protective effects of exercise against cancer-specific mortality, cancer recurrence, and all-cause mortality. Clinical trial data confirms that individuals who participate in exercise interventions experience fewer and less severe treatment-related side effects and achieve improved physical and psychological outcomes after a cancer diagnosis.

MyEP’s exercise sessions are specifically developed to offer cancer clients support during the entire treatment process, including the initial diagnosis, treatment period, and post-treatment period. Our team of Exercise Physiologists provide guidance on safe and effective exercises and provide individualised programs that can be performed at home or in a clinical setting. Our team also prioritise patient-centered care by actively responding to individual patient needs, goals, and preferences.
