Exercise and Cancer Fatigue

Exercise and Cancer Fatigue


Everybody has experienced some sort fatigue at one time or another. Fatigue is a general symptom commonly associated with disease.  Cancer treatment-related fatigue is the most prevalent and distressing symptoms of cancer therapy. Those being treated for cancer experience a different and far more disruptive form of fatigue. Exercise interventions are being proposed to minimize fatigue in cancer treating patients. Exercise studies with cancer patients have reported the positive effects of exercise on mood, chemotherapy side effect severity, weight gain, functional ability, and quality of life.

A study conducted  by the School of Nursing at Oregon Health Sciences University and Oregon Cancer Center in Portland examined the relationship between exercise and fatigue over the first three cycles of chemotherapy in women receiving treatment for breast cancer. Seventy-two newly diagnosed women with breast cancer were instructed in a home-based moderate-intensity exercise intervention. Measures of functional ability, energy expenditure, and fatigue were obtained at baseline and post test. Subjects maintained daily records of four types of fatigue, with exercise duration, intensity, and type.

Results showed that exercise significantly reduced all four levels of fatigue. As the duration of exercise increased, the intensity of fatigue declined. There was a significant carry-over effect of exercise on fatigue, but the effect lasted only one day. The level of fatigue at study entry was not associated with number of days of exercise or amount of exercise a woman engaged in.

In conclusion, the impact of exercise on fatigue was significant. It suggests the effectiveness of a low- to moderate-intensity regular exercise program in maintaining functional ability and reducing fatigue in women with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy.

Recognizing a Concussion

Recognizing a concussion

What is a concussion? A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement may cause the brain to bounce or twist in the skull and can create a chemical change in the brain, stretching and damaging brain cells.

Most people that experience a concussion recover well from symptoms at the time of the injury. However, there are some that can experience symptoms for days, weeks or even longer. Recovery may be slower among older adults, young children and teens. Those who have had a concussion in the past are also at a higher risk of having another one and may find that the recovery time may be more extensive.

Some symptoms of a concussion may appear right away. Others may not be noticed for days or even months after the injury. Many do not recognize or admit that they are having problems or symptoms. Others may not understand how the symptoms they are experiencing impact their daily activities.

Habits to a Healthy Lifestyle

Habits to a Healthy Lifestyle

Changing Habits to Develop a Healthy Lifestyle

We all can admit we have habits, some good and others bad. Many of us have tried time after time to create new, better, healthy habits. Some may succeed but others fall back into the same old habits. Those that succeed may find that the key to success is creating lifestyle changes. A lifestyle change is a process that can take time and require support from the individuals around you.

Our environment may also be the deciding factor as to whether a habitual urge does or does not occur. It contributes to whether a good intention to exercise or eat healthy will overcome sedentary and poor eating habits. Modifying your environment to help disrupt current unhealthy habits is important to success. These modifications may help prevent unwanted behaviors and encourage healthy ones.

You should make an attempt to disrupt unhealthy behaviors and ultimately replace these behaviors with healthy ones. For example, the goal of decreasing sedentary activity is synonymous to increasing physical activity. When starting a new exercise program you may benefit from exercising regularly at the same time of the day to form a habit. Choose a place most convenient for you. In regards to eating healthy placing unhealthy food in an inconvenient location may make you less likely to choose that food option first.  See more examples below of modifications to help you change some of your current habits.
