"Cancer treatment is a grueling course, leaving many people exhausted, weak and with a compromised immune system. Just getting out of bed can be a huge and daunting task, let alone exercising in a gymnasium or playing at the park with grandchildren. This is where a physical therapist comes in. Despite advances in medical treatments, individuals that receive cancer treatments typically experience extensive physical limitations during and after treatments. These limitations include and are not limited to cancer-related fatigue (CRF), pain, nerve damage, lymphedema, deconditioning, as well as incontinence." #cancerrehab

Fighting Cancer Related Fatigue With Exercise | Cheryl Guarna, MPT, CLT

Recent research demonstrates that the most effective treatment for cancer-related fatigue is...exercise- exceeding both medication and psychological interventions. This article, as featured in NoVA's "Your Health Magazine" features our founder, Cheryl Guarna, discussing the benefits of exercise in abating this very prevalent side effect. Call us today to set up an assessment - we can help!

Our patient outcomes continue to demonstrate that exercise helps to reduce the often debilitating fatigue related to cancer/cancer treatment.

Cancer: 'If exercise was a pill it would be prescribed to every patient'

Australia releases new statement regarding exercise and cancer. Prof Prue Cormie from the Australian Catholic University, said the statement was based on “indisputable” evidence. “Really we are at the stage where the science is telling us that withholding exercise from cancer patients can be harmful,” Cormie said.

“Exercise is the best medicine someone with cancer can take in addition to their standard cancer treatments. That’s because we know now that people who exercise regularly experience fewer and less severe treatment side-effects; cancer-related fatigue, mental distress, quality of life.”

Why the trauma of cancer doesn’t end after treatment

So, you have completed cancer treatment...what now? Many survivors are left with physical, emotional and cognitive limitations after treatment ends. It is not expected that survivors should just "bounce back". Survivors need ongoing support. Here at Oncology Rehab and Wellness we can help you with the lingering physical challenges (weakness, fatigue, pain, decreased activity tolerance). When statistics demonstrate that 80-90% of post-treatment patients have at least one physical impairment that can be improved with Physical Therapy, things need to change. Talk to your doctor about what cancer rehabilitation can do for you. Or give us a call and we can answer your questions. We are here to help you on your journey.

Exercise May Make Tumors Less Aggressive, More Likely to Respond to Treatment

One of the most important things in a cancer journey is support. Support comes in many forms. Cancer can seem like a lonely journey, even when you have family members that love you and are there for you. Sometimes it just helps to talk with someone who has been/is going through what you are going through. Here is just one example of a support network available to survivors.

Research review underscores progress in treating kidney cancer, importance of close patient monitoring

"With the swift introduction of approved immunotherapy approaches into the treatment landscape for many cancers, medical professionals across many care-delivery settings and specialties are tasked with the need to follow and understand a set of treatment standards that are changing rapidly. The treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), or kidney cancer, has been one of the fields most dramatically affected by what the authors of a new research review article call a period of "remarkable progress," with FDA approval of the first immunotherapy combination regimen for the treatment of patients newly diagnosed with kidney cancer coming just a few months ago, in April 2018."

Specific sedentary behavioral patterns linked with risk of young-onset colorectal cancer

"A new study in JNCI Cancer Spectrum has identified a connection between prolonged time spent sitting while watching TV and increased risk of colorectal cancer for younger Americans.

Young-onset colorectal cancer, diagnosed under age 50, is increasing in the US and globally, sharply contrasting with the dramatic decreases among older people, largely as a result of cancer screening initiatives. Young-onset colorectal cancer has potentially different molecular characteristics compared to those of late-onset, and is typically more aggressive and found at a more advanced stage than those in older patients, resulting in greater years of life lost. Despite these trends, researchers have identified few risk factors specific to young-onset colorectal cancer."
