PINC & STEEL Rehabilitation

 


The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Programs provide individualised, prescribed rehabilitation to women and men diagnosed with cancer; helping them to heal as well as possible and to function at optimal levels through every stage of their treatment and recovery. The Programs are delivered by Certified Cancer Rehab Physiotherapists. 

Janna Hawkins is the Certified PINC & STEEL Physiotherapist for the Wellington Region.

The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation programmes are specifically designed to help women & men diagnosed with cancer regain their physical mobility, strength and endurance, as well as improve their sense of well-being and incorporate exercise into their lifestyle. For each woman or man, the programme consists of individually designed and delivered sessions with a highly experienced Physiotherapist that are flexible to the needs of the client on the day. It can incorporate Pilates, physiotherapy, massage, breathing techniques, fatigue management and exercise prescription. 

Research shows that exercise therapy is a very important component of recovery from a cancer diagnosis and the effects of its treatment. Exercise has been shown to significantly improve longevity in cancer survivors. PINC & STEEL Physiotherapy will help cancer survivors to gain a sense of control, increase energy levels, learn exercises to enhance recovery and prevent long-term problems, regain core control and posture, strength and flexibility and regain a confidence in their body. 

Gift vouchers are available and make a fabulous gift from friends and family who want to help.
