June 15, 2017: The fatigue felt by people with cancer is so common that it has a name. Cancer-related fatigue isn’t unique to 1 type of cancer or cancer treatment, and it can occur even after treatment is complete. 

When cancer-related fatigue strikes, it’s often extremely debilitating, significantly impacting quality of life, and creating a level of fatigue that rest alone cannot address.

Although it might seem counterintuitive, one of the most effective ways to manage cancer-related fatigue is through exercise.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, a physical therapist explains why.
