Exercise / Physical Therapies
Exercise – a very grey area when undergoing treatment. People who are ordinarily fit and healthy suddenly don’t know if they can or cannot continue their preferred form of exercise. People who are diagnosed often want to boost their general health and fitness levels by eating better and exercising. In our research on the issue we have found that even Doctors and fitness experts struggle with the answer to this question. Every single body is different and reactions to treatments can be so wide ranging there is no one answer. A good place to start is a UK based website called cancer fit.me. This website was founded by 5 people, all with their own reasons for needing this website – from fitness professionals to Oncology doctors who have been through cancer themselves. It is a wonderful resource with a members forum and well worth a look. We will be adding more listings so please keep checking back.
