Exercise
Summary:

Specialist exercise programmes designed to help support cancer patients during and after treatment.

Description:

Research shows that exercise can help with the side effects of cancer treatment such as fatigue, pain, nausea and vomiting. It can also improve your mood and feelings of confidence. Too much exercise can make you tired, so can too little. Its important to find your own level. More importantly, the research shows that exercise can reduce the risk of the cancer coming back.

History:

Historically advice has been given based on the ‘rest is best’; principle, but the latest thinking is that a moderate level of exercise is beneficial during and after cancer treatment.

Notes:

Evidence suggests that being physically active during and after cancer can: Improve physical and psychological well-being Reduce the risk of consequences of treatment Improve overall survival rates and reduce the risk of recurrence Reduce the risk of co-morbidities (two or more medical conditions

Costs:

Varies according level of support offered.
