Mandy Lung

General Physiotherapy

After completing a degree in Exercise Physiology followed by Physiotherapy in Sydney, I decided it was time to explore more of Australia, particularly Queensland and its warmer waters.

My experience in both physiotherapy and exercise physiology has allowed me to see a wide range of conditions and appreciate the significance of an individualised treatment plan.

Having undergone an ACL reconstruction, I understand the frustration of not being able to participate in a sport you’re passionate about. So being able to empower clients through education and to modify activities so clients can continue to do the things they love, I believe, is the success of obtaining the best outcomes.

On days off, I love exploring the outdoors, hiking, heading to the beach, baking (always open to new recipes) and trying my hand in a variety of sports.

Mandy Lung

General Physiotherapy

After completing a degree in Exercise Physiology followed by Physiotherapy in Sydney, I decided it was time to explore more of Australia, particularly Queensland and its warmer waters.

My experience in both physiotherapy and exercise physiology has allowed me to see a wide range of conditions and appreciate the significance of an individualised treatment plan.

Having undergone an ACL reconstruction, I understand the frustration of not being able to participate in a sport you’re passionate about. So being able to empower clients through education and to modify activities so clients can continue to do the things they love, I believe, is the success of obtaining the best outcomes.

On days off, I love exploring the outdoors, hiking, heading to the beach, baking (always open to new recipes) and trying my hand in a variety of sports.

Mandy Lung

General Physiotherapy

After completing a degree in Exercise Physiology followed by Physiotherapy in Sydney, I decided it was time to explore more of Australia, particularly Queensland and its warmer waters.

My experience in both physiotherapy and exercise physiology has allowed me to see a wide range of conditions and appreciate the significance of an individualised treatment plan.

Having undergone an ACL reconstruction, I understand the frustration of not being able to participate in a sport you’re passionate about. So being able to empower clients through education and to modify activities so clients can continue to do the things they love, I believe, is the success of obtaining the best outcomes.

On days off, I love exploring the outdoors, hiking, heading to the beach, baking (always open to new recipes) and trying my hand in a variety of sports.

How Can Exercise Help With Cancer?

Optimising Cancer Outcomes Through Exercise, Written by Exercise Physiologist Annika Coyne

Cancer risk decreases as activity level increases

Physical activity, as a means of cancer prevention, has considerable strong and convincing evidence for particular cancers (breast and colorectal specifically), to the extent that the lack of physical activity is considered a risk factor for such cancers.

Exercise physiologist plays a significant role during and following cancer treatment:

  • Preventing, managing and reducing treatment-related side-effects
  • Bridging the gap between treatment cessation and returning to ADL
  • Improving long-term health by optimising physical functional, prevention of cancer reoccurrence and other chronic diseases (BMD loss, CVD, etc.)

In the literature, exercise during and following treatment has shown to:

  • Prevents decline and improve cardiovascular function
  • Improves body composition and immune function
  • Improves strength and flexibility
  • Improves body image, self-esteem and mood
  • Stimulate the neuromuscular, endocrine, immune and skeletal symptoms for symptom reduction and health enhancement

Reduces number and severity of side effects including:

  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Improves QOL
  • Reduced hospitalisation duration
  • Improves chemotherapy completion rates
  • Allows for better adjustment to illness
  • Reduces stress, anxiety and depression

In fact, the LACK of PHYSICAL ACTIVITY participation during and following cancer treatment has the potential to exacerbate fatigue symptoms and loss of function, overall impacting quality of life.

Exercise recommendations

  • Steady progress may mean regular participation in exercise rather than the continual progression of intensity/duration/frequency
  • Keeping a diary of frequency and intensity of side effects, exercise participation, the treatment being undertaken, workdays and other relevant information to help identify worsening symptoms and the cause throughout treatment.

Cardiovascular (CV) Exercise

·         Exercises involving large muscle groups

·         Don’t need to be restricted to walking or stationary bike

·         3-5days/week

·         20-30mins continuous CV exercise, but may need to start as low 3-5mins with rest intervals for deconditioned patients

Resistance Exercise

·         Dynamic using concentric an eccentric muscle contraction

·         Use of machine weight, free weights, bodyweight and bands that involve major functional muscle groups

·         Include exercises that replicate daily tasks causing problems for patients

·         1-3days per week (rest days in between)

·         6-10reps, 1-4 sets per muscle group
