Fitness Options for Cancer Patients in Special Circumstances

The benefits of better physical fitness for all cancer patients have been making headlines for over a decade. Researchers are regularly confirming these benefits for different types of cancer, different forms of exercise, and the variety of treatment programs. Studies have consistently shown that aerobic exercises can be safely coupled with strength training for most patients, and the benefits grow just as fast as the fitness level of the individual.

Every patient will bring a different set of precautions and existing fitness level to the program, and this means that every exercise program should be designed with the circumstances in mind. Many studies have focused on endurance aerobics, such as walking and light jogging. These standard forms of exercise are appropriate for most patients, but patients in special circumstances will benefit more from other types.  Some conditions that call for specially designed workout programs include post-op recovery, limited function or palliative care, and cancer of the bone or connective tissue.

Exercising for Post-op Recovery
Surgical advances in recent years have reduced the invasiveness and sped up recovery for some forms of cancer surgery. Prostatectomy, for instance, can now be performed with micro-incisions that minimize complications related to bladder and sexual function. Other forms of surgery are by necessity still highly invasive and have a long recovery time. The two most common types are mastectomy and surgery for colorectal cancer.

A review of randomized control trials published in 2010 showed that exercise interventions specifically designed for post-op recovery after breast surgery were highly effective at returning range of motion to the upper limbs. The long-held concern that exercise may contribute to lymphedema was also found to be invalid. Patients in these trials reported no complications. Of course, the key to this is responsible use of the specific exercises. A fitness expert can help in teaching these and ensuring proper form, and there are also DVDs available for those without the benefit of an expert. Similar benefits and programs are available for those undergoing other types of cancer surgery.

High Risk Patients
Elderly patients, those with limited mobility, and mesothelioma patients on palliative care can all gain the benefits of physical activity. However, the type of exercise and intensity will need to be more closely monitored to prevent dangerous injuries. The good news is that fitness experts are routinely employed to help in these cases, and the expense is covered by most insurance plans.

Musculoskeletal Cancers
Cancer of the bone or connective tissue is not a contraindication for exercise. In fact, most patients will still be able to use many types of traditional gym workouts. The special consideration here is that fitness programs should include some form of weight-bearing exercise while avoiding high-impact forms. Weight-bearing exercise prompts the body to build new bone and connective tissue, which may be essential in preventing fractures.

In special cases, it is imperative to seek out expert advice on the safest and most effective forms of exercise. This will ensure benefits and minimize the risk of injury.

Exercise Ideas for Kids

Child obesity is a growing problem in the UK, and with shocking statistics revealing that 25 percent of boys and 33 percent of girls aged between two and 19 years are overweight or obese – the problem doesn’t look like it is going to disappear anytime soon.

Parents are often surprised when they are told that their children are overweight. Health experts believe that child obesity has become the norm, therefore they are unable to tell if their child is overweight or not. And with 1 in 3 primary school children classed as overweight, it is not surprising that they find it hard to notice the problem.
Experts insist more exercise needs to be integrated into childrens’ daily lives as well as a healthy balanced diet. Child obesity levels could significantly decrease if their lifestyle changed. So why not start now? As parents/guardians, it is your responsibility to give your child the best start in life and as spring is just on the horizon, it is the perfect time to get your children active and enjoying the outdoors.

Below are some exercise ideas that are fun and great for fitness:

Swimming

Swimming has been tipped as one of the best exercises. The sport benefits the whole body and develops general strength and endurance. Especially on a hot summers day, swimming encourages children to be active and improve their social integration. This cardiovascular exercise promotes heart and lung health and improves stamina and flexibility.

Research has shown that that early swimmers perform better on tests measuring social, academic, motor and personality developments.
The activity can have a positive effect on emotional health and can improve your child’s mood.
Swimming can be enjoyed by all the family; therefore encouraging family time that involves exercise will benefit the whole family physically and emotionally.

Trampolining

Trampolines are enjoyed by anyone, any age! Believe it or not, bouncing on a trampoline has the same amount of health benefits as doing a few laps in the pool. Similar to swimming, trampolining is a cardiovascular exercise working the core muscles, helping your child keep trim and toned. Jumping repeatedly on a trampoline can be a strenuous exercise, however because your child is jumping on a bouncy trampoline pad, it reduces the impact, protecting your child’s joints and bones.
Research has shown that trampolining has positive effects for children who suffer with autism. As a child bounces, it can help integrate a child’s sensory and physical systems. Trampolining involves a lot of concentration and awareness, often without your child even realising. The activity develops coordination skills and improves balance and rhythm, essential skills for children to learn in early life.

Trampolining is such a convenient sport. Retailers sell trampolines in a huge range of sizes and shapes to suit any garden size.
Note that children who are less than 6 years old should use junior trampolines with handles.

Hula Hooping

A real favourite amongst children, hula hooping is the perfect tool to encourage gentle exercise into your child’s routine. People are often shocked at how many wellbeing and health benefits are achieved from hula hooping. Below is a list of what hula hooping can do for your child:

  • Improve coordination skills
  • Improve flexibility of the spine
  • Enhance your child’s mood
  • Increase your child’s fitness levels
  • Help burn fat

Balance Bikes
Balance bikes are ideal for toddlers as young as three. A balance bike does not have pedals or stabilisers, so children learn to balance and steer very quickly. Soon they’ll be balancing, learning and playing all at once. All the time, they are developing their motor skills and coordination, while having terrific fun.
Balance bikes improve:

  • Balance and coordination skills
  • Communication skills
  • Growth and security
  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Fitness and stamina

Find the perfect sized trampoline and the best looking balance bike and start encouraging your child to get fit this summer.

Shake Weight

My only New Year’s goal is to add exercise to my daily routine. So, a couple month’s back I received a Shake Weight thingy.
It’s been laying in the corner gathering dust since it came into my house.

I’m going to start using the Shake Weight today – as instructed and I will give a full review in one week. I’m told I only have to use it for 6 minutes a day – I think I can even handle that! I just did it for about 1 minute and I can definitely feel it already.

Wii Fit – An Incredible Experience!

Wii FitI fully understand the huge importance of daily exercise. I’ve seen the results in my body, mind an spirit. It helps me when I’m depressed; it helps me stick to a healthful diet; there is NOTHING that is bad about exercising. But – I HATE IT!! I have to force myself to do it. Sometimes, in the past I get in to a groove where I actually like it for a period of time – but that doesn’t usually last long.

I’ve had exercise partners along the way – and generally that helps me keep going. I’ve been partnered with the Emperor and my mother and I’ve even used a personal trainer. The personal trainer was great because she made me feel accountable. We now live in the middle-of-nowhere and have no access to personal trainers or even a gym that’s close by. Most recently I was working out with my mother at Curves. That actually lasted about 4 months!

My mother’s birthday was a few days ago and we decided that a great gift for her would be the Wii Fit program. What an amazing gift that was! Not so much for my mother – but for me. She’s still trying to get into the groove and make it work for her – and she will. I created my profile and did the “Body Test”; set up goals and started a few of the programs – and I LOVE IT!. I don’t remember ever looking forward to exercising like this before. I’ve beat everybody’s high score! I’ve already lost weight! And I can’t wait to do it again!

As for my body test results – I was happy to see that I’m only overweight and not obese. But my Wii age is 75! I’m older than my mother in Wii years! That was seriously discouraging – but at the same time a great motivator.

For anyone that struggles with exercising – I highly recommend trying the Wii Fit. It’s amazing!!!
