Due to today's many medical advances, the population of cancer survivors is continuously growing, creating a greater demand for rehabilitative care. Allied Health Services is currently in the process of developing an exercise program specifically designed for cancer survivors, from those who are undergoing treatment to those who have completed their treatment. Recent studies have shown that regular exercise can help reduce the adverse symptoms and side effects such as fatigue, commonly experienced by cancer survivors. In the past, rest has been prescribed to patients experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, however it is known now that rest may actually exacerbate the side effects that stem from adjuvant therapy. Exercise has been proven to improve the quality of life in cancer patients both physiologically and psychologically and has been deemed a very important rehabilitation techniques for this population.
