Exercise for Children with Cancer

Physical activity can be beneficial for children and adolescents during the different stages of treatment. Evidence shows that there is little risk of harm when the physical activity is prescribed and supervised by Paediatric Oncologists and Physiotherapists.

Evidence shows that children with cancer are less active than other children and adolescents the same age. Staying active during treatment can help to minimise and even prevent some of the side effects of cancer treatment. It can also help to improve mood and reduce symptoms such as fatigue.

This resource, developed by the Victorian Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service provides information on the types of exercise recommended for children living with cancer.
