I saw a good presentation from a physiotherapist at a BCC information day. Her general advice for bone mets was:
It might be worth asking your BCN to put you in touch with a phsyio at your local hospital to get some more tailored advice.
Hope that helps,
Someone I know has bone mets from prostate cancer and also used to be a runner and now can't. He walks alot but also does road cycling. Don't know if that's an option?
Sophie, I don't have any experience with this, but I would get your oncs opinion. Myself I wouldn't do anything that caused pain or if I felt it could put stress on any bones involved. FF
Hi I can see there's been no replies to this yet. Have you found anything suitable as I was thinking something gentler considering my restricted mobility and bone mets, such as tai chi, Pilates etc?
I have bone Mets and have been diagnosed since April. I used to be a keen long distance runner but I am told that I can no longer do any high impact exercise.
Apart from swimming , has anyone tried anything else?
i am thinking of yoga, Pilates and some strength work in the gym?
