Hip Fracture Patients May Regain Mobility Faster With At-home Exercise

Exercise helps to prevent cancer, fight it, and ward off relapse: studies

This immobility, combined with fear of falling, prevents them from doing any activities often leading to a downward spiral in function and quality of life. For their study, Latham and her team worked with 195 functionally-limited older adults who had completed traditional rehabilitation after a hip fracture. Half of the group received cardiovascular nutrition education, while the intervention group received instruction for home rehabilitation including three to four home visits with a physical therapist, training for exercises and goal-setting tools. The exercises mimicked basic tasks participants would need to go about their everyday lives, such as repeatedly sitting in a chair and standing, standing up and reaching high and stepping up and down a step.

And researchers from the p90X3 workout Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine recently validated those findings when they looked at 1,021 men who were part of the Harvard’s Alumni Health Study. The study team found that cancer survivors who used more than 12,600 calories per week through exercise had better life expectancy as compared to those who hardly exercised and only used less than 2,100 calories each week. After adjustments for age, early parental death, smoking and weight, the likelihood of dying of any cause was reduced by a very significant 48 percent. “Physical activity should be actively promoted to such individuals to enhance longevity,” said Dr Kathlee Wolin, http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/p90x3-reviews/sbwire-455028.htm a co-author of the study. Conclusion Put together, such studies show that regular exercise not only improves the life expectancy of healthy people and helps prevent cancer, it also boosts the lifespan of those with cancer as well as those who had previously survived cancer.
