Jeremy’s work with the Bendat patients primarily involves:

  • Reducing pain and disability from cancer related surgery
  • Maintaining muscle mass and bone density for people undergoing oncology treatment and androgen deprivation therapy
  • Reduce nausea and fatigue
  • Improving mental health through individual and group exercise
  • Maintaining overall functional capacity so patients can remain engaged in a meaningful life
  • Using exercise immediately prior to chemo/immunotherapy with the aim of improving drug delivery to target cells and enhancing cell sensitivity to medications.

Prior to 2016 he had almost two decades of experience in the health industry in a variety of Physiotherapy & Sports Science roles, including senior positions at a number of Chronic Pain clinics and West Coast Eagles & Claremont Football Clubs.

In all these roles Jeremy’s focus has been on providing a high level of patient centered care. He has enjoyed working as part of a multidisciplinary team and understands the importance of prompt and detailed communication with referring consultants.
