Many different types of cancer treatment can lead to bone loss. Make exercise part of your daily routine as much as you can. Weight-bearing activities, such as walking, dancing and climbing stairs, are best because they help stimulate the production of bone-forming cells. Light weightlifting is also helpful.

Great info- great networking and great conversation! Another successful seminar last Sunday, “Nutrition for Cancer Survivors” at Oncology Rehab and Wellness! Thank you to all who attended! @oncrehabnova

"Cancer treatment is a grueling course, leaving many people exhausted, weak and with a compromised immune system. Just getting out of bed can be a huge and daunting task, let alone exercising in a gymnasium or playing at the park with grandchildren. This is where a physical therapist comes in. Despite advances in medical treatments, individuals that receive cancer treatments typically experience extensive physical limitations during and after treatments. These limitations include and are not limited to cancer-related fatigue (CRF), pain, nerve damage, lymphedema, deconditioning, as well as incontinence." #cancerrehab

Recent research demonstrates that the most effective treatment for cancer-related fatigue is...exercise- exceeding both medication and psychological interventions.

Call us today to set up an assessment - we can help!

Our patient outcomes continue to demonstrate that exercise helps to reduce the often debilitating fatigue related to cancer/cancer treatment.

Cancer: 'If exercise was a pill it would be prescribed to every patient'

Australia releases new statement regarding exercise and cancer. Prof Prue Cormie from the Australian Catholic University, said the statement was based on “indisputable” evidence. “Really we are at the stage where the science is telling us that withholding exercise from cancer patients can be harmful,” Cormie said.

“Exercise is the best medicine someone with cancer can take in addition to their standard cancer treatments. That’s because we know now that people who exercise regularly experience fewer and less severe treatment side-effects; cancer-related fatigue, mental distress, quality of life.”

Why the trauma of cancer doesn’t end after treatment

So, you have completed cancer treatment...what now? Many survivors are left with physical, emotional and cognitive limitations after treatment ends. It is not expected that survivors should just "bounce back". Survivors need ongoing support. Here at Oncology Rehab and Wellness we can help you with the lingering physical challenges (weakness, fatigue, pain, decreased activity tolerance). When statistics demonstrate that 80-90% of post-treatment patients have at least one physical impairment that can be improved with Physical Therapy, things need to change. Talk to your doctor about what cancer rehabilitation can do for you. Or give us a call and we can answer your questions. We are here to help you on your journey.
