Have you recently been diagnosed with cancer and are now undergoing treatment? Or are you a cancer survivor who still feels like you are not functioning at full capacity?
WE CAN HELP!
Treatment for cancer, as well as the cancer itself, can take a physical toll on a patient’s body. Cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common side effects reported by patients fighting cancer as well as by cancer survivors. Up to 80% of all cancer survivors report experiencing cancer-related fatigue, and this side effect can persist for years even after treatment ends.
Exercise has the highest quality evidence for treating cancer-related fatigue. Physical therapists can help to create a foundation of better movement and stability, then transition a patient to an individualized fitness program to help alleviate cancer-related fatigue and reduce the effects of deconditioning.
