Brisk Walks Are a Health Boon for Prostate Cancer Patients

Posted on February 13, 2016 by Disability Help Group

After an individual has been diagnosed with cancer there may be a lot of uncertainties about the future, including how they will financially care for their family. If you are unable to work during a long period of time as you go through treatment, you may qualify to receive long-term disability benefits.

In a report from the Doctor’s Lounge, a new study suggests that brisk walks on a regular basis could potentially reduce the progression and risk of death for prostate cancer patients.

This newest study builds on previous research that has shown those individuals who participate in regular vigorous physical activities lower their risk of death from prostate cancer.

Brisk walking, according to these latest findings, means to walk at least 3 miles per hour. When done at least 3 times per week these men were found to have a 57% reduced risk of prostate cancer progression and death, in comparison to men who walked a slower pace and fewer times per week.

These findings were published in the June 1 issue of Cancer Research.

If you have questions concerning your eligibility for long-term disability benefits or if you need help in filing your claim or appealing a claim that has been denied, you should seek legal counsel. A Broward County long-term disability representative can help.

Long-term disability benefits may be available to those who have purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. Unfortunately, the insurers don’t make it easy for the disabled to get access to the benefits they deserve. When a severe medical condition makes it impossible for you to work and you’ve been denied your long-term disability benefits, a representative from Disability Help Group can help you to cut through the red tape and fight for your benefits, no matter where you live in the U.S!
