EXERCISE & LYMPHOMA
The first 2 Living Well Sessions focus on why Exercise is so important and how you can incorporate this in your life despite a lymphoma diagnosis.
Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Dale Ischia, explored the importance of exercise and keeping active. The side effects of treatment can place additional strain on the body, often leading to fatigue, decline in function, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.
Exercise can help improve the efficacy and tolerance of treatment and minimise side effects, leading to improved quality of life. This session will explore the importance and benefits of exercise, during watch and wait, treatment and beyond.
