Effects of exercise on pain and fatigue in cancer

Does exercise improve quality of life?

Previous literature has highlighted the benefits of post-surgical exercise in patients with rectal cancer. However, limited data exists on the pre-surgical but post-chemotherapy phases of cancer management, and the effects that exercise has on pain, sleep, and quality of life.

The authors of this study acknowledge the physiological benefits associated with exercise post-operatively, and aimed to examine benefits of exercise between chemotherapy treatment and surgical management of patients with rectal cancer.
