Exercise Can Help Counter Cancer-Associated Fatigue
Whether from the disease itself or the treatment, cancer can be exhausting, but a new review says there are ways to beat back cancer-related fatigue.
The review included a look at 113 past studies that included more than 11,000 adult cancer patients. The researchers found that exercise and/or behavioral and educational therapy seemed to be more effective than prescription drugs for dealing with fatigue.
“Exercise and psychological treatment, and the combination of these two interventions, work the best for treating cancer-related fatigue — better than any pharmaceuticals we have tested,” noted study lead author Karen Mustian. She’s an associate professor with the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Wilmot Cancer Institute in Rochester, N.Y.
Exercise can be beneficial for maintaining overall health and wellness, assisting many individuals with weight loss and rehabilitation. Recent studies have also demonstrated that exercise can help counter cancer-associated fatigue. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
