Exercise is an important rehabilitation tool for patients who suffer from cancer. Exercise has also been proven to relieve the side effects that come from cancer treatments. Research shows that for most people, exercise is safe and helpful before, during, and after cancer treatment. Customized exercise programs have been proven to increase survival rates in cancer patients. Regular exercise can increase your sense of well-being after cancer treatment and make your recovery faster. Too much time spent resting or sitting can cause loss of body function, muscle weakness, and a reduced range of motion. Cancer survivors are encouraged to exercise regularly. Exercise is also good for your heart, lungs, and other body systems.
If you are a cancer patient who is undergoing treatment or someone who is recovering from cancer, this session is for you. Some of the benefits of exercise for people suffering from cancer are improving how treatment works, preventing the reoccurrence of cancer, increasing physical abilities, and boosting the immune system.
Some of the questions that we will be answering in this session are: "Does aerobic exercise reduce the impact of cancer treatment?" "How can exercise enhance the effects of cancer treatment?" "What exercises should cancer patients avoid?" and "How to start a cancer recovery exercise program?"
I'm a certified exercise physiologist and a certified cancer recovery specialist. I've developed many exercise programs for patients who have cancer and those who are recovering from cancer. After completing my program, patients experienced less fatigue, happier moods, and more physical independence.
