Cancer survivors always have questions about exercise. Which exercises should I be doing and which should I avoid?
Can I exercise during chemotherapy?
Can I exercise if I have lymphedema?
How do I exercise safely with osteoporosis?
Some will need to exercise under supervision while others will be able to exercise independently. The type and scope of cancer and the overall medical condition and fitness level of a patient will determine whether or not a supervised program is needed.
My book, Exercises for Cancer Survivors, is an essential guide for those who prefer or need to exercise independently.
For those who do not live near a major city, it might be difficult to find a therapist who has experience working with cancer patients. This book provides cancer survivors with access to fitness tools specifically created for their needs. It can also be a valuable tool for those who cannot afford health care, or are unable to leave their house. Exercise is a simple and affordable treatment.
Cancer surivors should use the exercises in this book as a guide to building an individualized routine that works and feels right. This book will teach you how to prevent injury.
Cancer survivors need to be patient; returning to your pre-cancer fitness level takes time and cannot be rushed. You will learn the implications of your particular surgery and the corrective exercises needed to improve recovery.
Exercises for Cancer Survivors is a great way for cancer survivors to learn stretching and strength training exercise. Cancer survivors who participate in exercise programs say that it is empowering and gives them a sense of control and accomplishment.
