The need for an Exercise Standard of Care (SCM) has been recognized by many leading organizations in the oncology research community. This allows for survivors to receive empirically validated care that is proven to improve quality of life for cancer survivors.
Exercise is beneficial in lessening the impact of cancer related fatigue (CRF), chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), joint pain, balance deficits, strength loss, range of motion impairments, and gait disturbances often caused by cancer and cancer treatments. Through our four phase program, participants are given the tools and resources needed to improve function and maximize independence.
Our evidence-based practice operates in accordance with the University of Northern Colorado Cancer Research Institution's Standard of Care for administering testing for populations affected by cancer. Individualized exercise prescriptions are a vital component of continuity of care and are derived from UNCCRI's baseline evaluation including body composition, resting vital signs, aerobic capacity, functional strength, mobility, balance and flexibility.
Alleviate the deleterious side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation; reduce or limit the physiological decrements.
Improve physiological and psychological function via progressive overload to reach healthy status.
