    Posted on September 30th, 2012 Patricia No comments

    Although many women within the early stages of breast cancer suffer from side effects such as nausea, anxiety and fatigue as a result of treatment, new findings show that exercise may help to alleviate symptoms and improve physical functioning.

    In a six-month study, published in the February issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology, researchers examined the effects of low-intensity exercise in 123 early-stage breast cancer patients. All of the patients in the study were women, and all were undergoing adjuvant therapy – radiation, chemotherapy or hormonal therapy that cancer patients receive after their tumors have been removed.

    Researchers found that women who performed low-intensity exercises, such as walking, three to five days a week, had reduced pain and increased energy compared to inactive patients. They also found that patients who exercised independently improved their physical functioning compared to patients in supervised exercise programs. While not all of the patients benefited from the exercise program, about 50 percent of the patients reported having fewer side-effects, reduced pain and improved functioning.
