Physical exercise is therapy

Studies show that exercising reduces the risk of cancer. However, it is important to exercise also after cancer treatment. Exercise is the best form of treatment for fatigue experienced by cancer patients – not rest. Exercising will improve your physical fitness, quality of life and endurance. It will also reduce the side effects of treatments.
Ask about exercising from the care personnel at the Department of Oncology.
During inpatient periods, physiotherapists actively participate in the rehabilitation of patients and offer advice on any topic, ranging from exercise therapy to assistive device assessments. Outpatients who have recently had breast cancer surgery and other patients in need of exercise instructions are entitled to an appointment with a physiotherapist at the physiotherapy unit. During the appointment, your condition is assessed and you receive exercise instructions.
