Patients With Cancer Who Experience Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy (cipn) May Experience Improvement With Exercise, According To A Study Published In Supportive Care In Cancer.

The study showed that those who exercised saw a lessening of peripheral neuropathy symptoms as opposed to those who were in the control group. The authors concluded that exercise is a promising tool that clinicians should consider prescribing for patients receiving taxane-based, platinum-based, and vinca alkaloid-based drugs, especially for geriatric patients.
