It is delivered by certified PINC Physiotherapists and provides a full range of services designed to care, support and guide women through every stage of their treatment and recovery, to ultimately help improve quality of life, strength and sense of wellbeing.

? Reduce treatment related side effects

The PINC Program is chronologically formatted into 4 phases. Timing of each phase is dependent upon your physical condition, the length of the healing process, the type of surgery involved, and the courses of adjuvant treatments.

? Pre Op Phase ? Designed to prepare you for your upcoming cancer surgery

? Post op phase – Designed to assist in the healing process of clients who are recently post surgery or undergoing treatments. To restore strength and flexibility to particular joints and muscle groups that have become weak and inflexible as a result of surgery
