Exercise after Treatment

Exercise is key to your recovery journey, helping you regain physical strength, boost your mood, and improve overall well-being.

Before embarking on any exercise routine, consult with your healthcare team.
They know your medical history and may recommend modifications or precautions depending on the type of cancer you had, the treatments you received, and any lingering side effects.

Listen to your body and take it easy at first. As you start feeling more comfortable, gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts.
Remember, slow and steady progress is key.

Cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and flexibility exercises can help you achieve a well-rounded fitness routine.
Exercises like swimming, cycling, or dancing improve heart health, while strength training, such as lifting weights or using resistance bands, helps build muscle mass.
Flexibility exercises like yoga or Pilates enhance your range of motion and promote relaxation.

Pay attention to how you feel during and after exercise.
Pushing yourself too hard can be counterproductive and may lead to injuries.

Starting an exercise routine after cancer treatment can be both exciting and intimidating.
Every step counts, no matter how small. Celebrate the progress you make along the way.
