FREE Exercise Program E-Books For (Breast) Cancer Treatment & Recovery


Exercise Guide To Cancer Treatments & Recovery BooksNumerous studies have examined the role of physical activity and exercise during and following cancer treatment, yet exercise is not generally incorporated into cancer care or discussed with cancer patients. Significant reductions in physical activity have been observed in women diagnosed with breast cancer. The evidence suggests patients should be encouraged to exercise after being diagnosed with cancer. To get you started we have included 2 FREE E-books to help you begin an exercise program.

The aim of this booklet is to teach you a simple exercise programme and give you advice about staying active and improving your fitness. This will help you to improve your quality of life during and after treatment for cancer.
During chemotherapy and radiotherapy many people have muscle weakness, stiffness and fatigue because of their cancer or from the treatment.
The fatigue can be severe and limits activity. Inactivity leads to muscle wasting and loss of function.
When you are in hospital, wearing your own clothes may help you to feel more ‘normal’ and add to your general well-being. It is also a good idea to sit out of bed as often as possible and try to take short walks during the day. This can help with your breathing, blood pressure, digestion, core stability and mood.

Exercise is an important part of your treatment and recovery after surgery for breast cancer. It can help you:
  • begin your daily activities again (such as bathing and dressing)
  • maintain movement in your arm and shoulder
  • improve muscle tone
  • decrease joint stiffness
  • reduce pain in the neck and back area
  • improve your overall well-being
Everyone is different and heals at their own pace. Talk to your doctor or another member of your healthcare team before starting the exercises in this booklet, and let them know about your progress. The timelines suggested are only to guide you. Some exercises can be started right after surgery. Exercises that involve moving your shoulders and arms can usually be started once you’ve had your drain removed. Strengthening and general conditioning exercises can be added to your routine when you’ve healed more.
