LEARN ABOUT THE ROLE OF EXERCISE IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER AND OTHER SERIOUS HEALTH DIAGNOSES.
This week I was super fortunate to spend time talking with physiotherapist & exercise physiologist, Jeremy Ingram. Jeremy is deeply passionate about improving the health-related quality of life for those who are dealing with chronic pain, disease or cancer treatment and has created Western Integrated Health to meet this aim.
Jeremy tells of how he began his career with a focus on professional football, working with Claremont Football and the West Coast Eagles, before ‘out of left’ field a side role in a clinic focusing on pain management started the trajectory to where he is today.
Jeremy superbly presents a wealth of information of evidence and knowledge in an approachable manner about the role of exercise to counter the physical side effects of cancer treatment and how it plays a key role in improving survivorship from these episodes.
But despite the science research and stats, there’s a real key point that Jeremy makes which is that despite the situation there always something you personally can do to improve your health and in that turn the snowball effect of a significant life event, such as cancer treatment, upwards instead of downwards.
