The AECC inaugurates the first Oncological Physical Activity Program of the Marina Alta in Ondara

23 2024 April - 18: 08

The Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) in Ondara has announced the implementation of the first Oncological Physical Activity Program in the Marina Alta, a significant milestone in the field of health and well-being of cancer patients in the region.

This program, free and pioneer of its kind, arises as a result of the collaboration between the AECC of Ondara, the City Council and the University of Alicante. Its main objective is to offer patients undergoing cancer treatment an effective tool to mitigate the side effects of cancer and its treatments, while promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Designed specifically for patients undergoing treatment, the program will feature the participation of professionals in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, who will provide free oncological physical exercise classes, accompanied by individualized follow-up sessions.

The benefits of physical exercise during cancer treatment are widely recognized, including improvements in response to treatment, reduction of fatigue, maintenance of heart and lung health, as well as reduction of anxiety and depression, among others.

The program will take place in the gymnasium of the Ondara Municipal Pool, located on Avenida Partida Xebic s/n. For registration and more information, contact is available at 900 100 036.

In addition to physical exercise classes, patients will also have access to a variety of complementary services such as speech therapy, physiotherapy, nutrition, psychological care, social care, prevention and volunteering, offered after a comprehensive evaluation carried out by the team of professionals.

The launch of this program represents a significant advance in the comprehensive care of cancer patients, highlighting the importance of physical activity in improving quality of life and well-being during the cancer treatment process.
