Lou James founder - "Many women we look after, tell us that during the process of diagnosis and treatment they have a terrible feeling of loss of control. PINC Cancer Rehab Physio's can help women gain a sense of control back. We can help women maximise their own recovery and teach them what they can do to help themselves. One woman recently described her PINC Physio as like having a coach in her corner guiding, supporting and helping her through each week of her chemo.  Everyone needs someone in their corner that understands the physical and emotional impact of cancer treatment!"
