The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation program is a specialised rehabilitation program dedicated to improving the strength, quality of life and sense of well being of all individuals diagnosed with cancer.

The program is delivered by certified PINC and STEEL Cancer Rehab physiotherapists across the country and provides a full range of services designed to care, support and guide individuals through every stage of their treatment and recovery.

The sessions may include a combination of services including: manual physiotherapy, graduated resistance training, individualised movement therapy, fatigue and pain management and exercise prescription.
