Top Three Benefits of Physical Activity for Those Living with a Brain Tumor
The American Brain Tumor Association’s resource, “Living with a Brain Tumor,” shares tips to live well with a brain tumor, and identities physical activity and healthy eating to complement brain tumor treatment.
There are many ways to be physically active that fit your personality and lifestyle, such as walking or light exercise. Remember to clear any physical activity with your medical team before starting a routine.
The ABTA identities physical activity and healthy eating to complement brain tumor treatment.
Top three benefits of physical activity and exercise for those living with a brain tumor are:
- Help with treatment-related fatigue;
- Improve strength, endurance and mobility; and
- Help you cope with anxiety and depression.
Need a reason to get started on an exercise routine after a brain tumor diagnosis?
