Cancer Rehabilitation

The Pinc & Steel Programme is an individualised exercise programme for people in all stages of cancer.

What is the Pinc and Steel Cancer Rehabilitation Programme?

Pinc and Steel is a trust that was set up to provide training and funding for individualised cancer rehabilitation programmes. People who have had a diagnosis of cancer at any stage after their diagnoses can come and see a trained physiotherapist to design a programme to help them with rehabilitation following treatment for cancer, be that surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy etc.

Each person’s journey is different, so an individual programme is important to meet the different needs of each person. Treatment could consist of education on fatigue and pain management, lymphodema management, specific exercises to safely improve function, strength or mobility, soft tissue treatment for pain relief, scarring or adhesions.
