Exercise Provides Significant Health Benefits to Cancer Patients

Posted on February 15, 2016 by Disability Help Group

Health News reports that exercise provides significant health benefits to cancer patients. When cancer becomes disabling and you are no longer able to continue working, then you may qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits.

A new report indicates that while prescription medication can be helpful to cancer patients, nothing replaces exercise which provides health benefits not only during their recovery but long-term.

By exercising the recommended 150 minutes a week, breast cancer patients could reduce their risk of recurrence or death by as much as 40%. Prostate cancer patients found a reduction of the same by 30%. Colon cancer patients experience a reduction up to 50%.

Additionally, cancer patients who regularly exercise also experience a reduction in common side effects that affect them mentally and physically such as heart disease, osteoporosis, depression, and fatigue.

While some may believe that exercise will cause fatigue, researchers find that the opposite is true and that energy is restored and the exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous. It can include activities like walking, gardening, or swimming.

When cancer has caused you to become disabled and unable to work, then you should speak with a Ft. Lauderdale Social Security disability associate about qualifying for disability benefits.
