Physical Activity Can Help You Manage Symptoms
Cancer Exercise Programs in Meridian
Research has shown that staying physically active is an important component of self-care for patients with cancer. Moderate aerobic exercise such as biking, walking, and light weight lifting can help reduce fatigue and improve your overall quality of life. Patients who continue to exercise during their cancer treatment experience up to 50% less fatigue than those that don’t. This also has mental benefits and can help patients stave off symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Exercise can also prevent weight gain. Gaining weight after completing cancer treatment increases the risk of recurrence. This is most common for breast, prostate, and colon cancers. Remaining physically active during and after cancer treatment will make it easier to avoid weight gain.
