STEEL represents the strength, courage and resolve of the men we see after a cancer diagnosis.
Men's rehabilitation needs are different to women's. Regaining physical strength and stamina can really help men with the mental stuff as well!
"After surgery, chemo & radiation, my body had taken a bit of a battering. My Steel Physio did an exceptional job assessing what my current limits were, and identifying potential improvements through the right exercises and manual physiotherapy. Before Steel, I had given up on being able to do some basic types of movement, which other people would take for granted. Steel made a huge difference to me - it gave me a sense of normal movement, and removed the feeling of being permanently limited from my treatment. I would highly recommend Steel to other cancer patients - it has been an exceptional way to return flexibility & strength post-treatment, beyond what I had thought were my limits."
