GRANADA – Researchers from the University of Granada and two hospitals have found that telerehabilitation may help relieve the side effects of breast cancer and its treatment. “The participants have ameliorated their pain, strength, fatigue and quality of life, which reflects that an eight-week exercise program followed through the Internet can be successfully carried out without the need for an in-person therapeutic strategy,” said Noelia Galiano Castillo, lead author of the study. Participants in the study used a rehabilitation protocol over the Internet through Skype. In addition, the study found that the benefits of the program were maintained six months after its completion.
