Cancer Exercise

Exercise and rehabilitation play an important role in helping patients cope with treatment and its side-effects, and recover health. Moreover, for some types of cancer, exercise has shown to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Wellspring offers the most comprehensive community-based cancer exercise program in Canada. Led by qualified Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists and Exercise Physiologists, patients are individually assessed, prescribed customized exercise regimens, and closely supervised in their exercise plans through a 20-week program.

Professional Training Program

To ensure maximum safety and benefit of its Cancer Exercise program, Wellspring trains rehabilitation professionals prior to leadership of the program. CancerSmart Rehab provides education about cancer and its treatment, and the specific dos and don’ts of exercise and rehab interventions for cancer patients.
