Cancer and Exercise
Keeping active before, during and after cancer treatment can help both your physical and mental health.
Some of the benefits of regular exercise include:
- Help to reduce fatigue
- Improve mood and positivity
- Increase strength, balance and mobility
- Help to maintain independence and complete daily tasks.
Not sure where to start?
Whether you are an active gym goer or prefer a peaceful stroll in the park, the changes to your body during cancer treatment can be an unsettling time. That is where Big C comes in, we can support you alongside your clinical team to become or stay active in a safe way.
