How Exercise Physiology Can Help Cancer Patients

Cancer treatment can be physically and emotionally demanding. It can lead to fatigue, deconditioning, and other side effects that can make it difficult to do everyday activities. Exercise physiology can help cancer patients manage these side effects and improve their overall health and well-being.

How Does Exercise Help Cancer Patients?

Exercise has been shown to have a number of benefits for cancer patients, including:

  • Reducing fatigue
  • Improving muscle strength and endurance
  • Maintaining or improving bone density
  • Managing weight
  • Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases
  • Improving mood and cognitive function
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Improving quality of life

What Type of Exercise Is Best for Cancer Patients?

The best type of exercise for cancer patients will vary depending on their individual needs and circumstances. However, some general guidelines include:

  • Start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts.
  • Choose activities that you enjoy and that are appropriate for your fitness level.
  • Avoid activities that put too much strain on your body, such as heavy lifting or high-impact exercises.
  • Talk to your doctor or an exercise physiologist before starting any new exercise program.
