Exercise Physiology for Complex Medical Issues

Regular exercise is proven to have myriad benefits for those with complex health issues, such as cancer and lymphedema but it can be especially difficult to establish given the challenges posed by those conditions. Swelling in Lymphedema patients can make it hard to move their affected limb(s), but exercise can help to move fluid through the lymphatic system, potentially reducing swelling as well as strengthening and improving range of motion. Many patients undergoing chemotherapy report feeling tired, weak, slow or unfocused. While more rest may seem like an obvious solution, exercise has been shown to increase energy levels, improve sleep and ease feelings of depression. Incorporating physical activity into your daily life before, during, and after treatment can: 

Boost energy and reduce the feeling of fatigue 

Lessen depression & anxiety

Improve quality of sleep

Increase muscle strength, bone health, and range of motion

Strengthen the immune system

Increase appetite

Lower side effects from cancer treatment

Reduce flare-ups of lymphedema

Maintain mobility & independence

Provide positive social outlet

Reduce the risk of cancer recurrence
