Clayne Stebbings is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, with a Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) with more than 20 years experience in helping people achieve their exercise goals. He uses his skills in exercise physiology, exercise for cancer, rehabilitation, and functional exercise to help combat the side effects of cancer treatment and help with the effectiveness of oncology treatment.
The goal of an exercise physiology program is to not just improve cancer treatment outcomes but also give patients better overall health. Equally as important is a reduction in the incidence of injury and pain in patients everyday life.
Clayne’s practical philosophy is to give you the “WHY” in your exercise program, e.g. why is each exercise especially suited to your needs.
Exercise has been shown to assist patients throughout their oncology treatment to:
- Maintain muscle mass and bone density whilst in the midst of chemotherapy
- Improve the effectiveness of their chemotherapy treatment
- Reduce the side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea, fatigue, peripheral neuropathy and balance
- Help combat anxiety and depression which are common in patients undergoing cancer therapy
- Improve tolerance of combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment with exercise
Under the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program clients who meet the criteria for exercise physiology and cancer, are eligible for up to five Medicare rebated sessions per calendar year. A number of Australian private health funds currently cover Exercise Physiology treatment as an adjunct to cancer treatment. Please contact your provider to check your cover.
