BREAST CANCER

Exercise During and After Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is given after surgery to reduce the risk of breast cancer coming back (recurrence). Radiation may cause side effects, mainly involving the skin of the area being treated. Radiation also may damage the heart muscle. Fatigue and anemia (low red blood cell count) can be other side effects of radiation, and exercise can help ease both of them.

 

When can you exercise? 

During:Yes.Make sure you have your doctor’s OK to start. Explain the exercises you plan to do and ask about any possible limitations. Many studies have shown that exercise during radiation therapy can ease side effects, including fatigue, anemia (low red blood cell count), and sleeping problems.

 

It’s also a good idea to come for a 1-1 consultation for a structural evaluation before you start exercising. We take you through all the basic movement patterns and planes of the body using small props. This way you get an understanding of the way your body moves. 

After:Yes. Again, make sure you tell your doctor the exercises you plan to do and ask about any possible limitations.
