This document aims to summarize and analyze systematically the current body of evidence about the effects of specific exercise proto- cols on physical function, balance control and quality of life in patients with peripheral neuropathy (PNP) induced by chemotherapy. Methods: Systematic Review, Literature survey Specific terms were identified for the literature research in MEDLINE, Scopus, Bandolier, PEDro, and Web of Science. Only studies pub- lished in peer-reviewed journals written in English language were considered. Four manuscripts were classified as eligible with 88 total participants, with an average of 57.1 years old. Quality appraisal classified two studies as high quality investigations while two with low quality. Results were summarized in the following domains: “CIPN symptoms”, “Static balance control”, “Dynamic balance control”, “Quali- ty of life and Physical function”. Results Specific exercise protocols were able to counteract common symptoms of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) during chemotherapy treatments. Significant improvements were detected on postural control. Additionally, patients’ quality of life and inde- pendence were found ameliorated after exercise sessions, together with reductions on altered sensations and in other peripheral neu- ropathy symptoms. Combined exercise protocols including endurance, strength and sensorimotor training showed larger improvements. Conclusions Exercise prescriptions for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy with CIPN symptoms should be recommended since these exercise interventions appeared as feasible and have been demonstrated as useful tools to counteract some common side effects of chemother- apeutic agents.

Abstract

This document aims to summarize and analyze systematically the current body of evidence about the effects of specific exercise proto- cols on physical function, balance control and quality of life in patients with peripheral neuropathy (PNP) induced by chemotherapy. Methods: Systematic Review, Literature survey Specific terms were identified for the literature research in MEDLINE, Scopus, Bandolier, PEDro, and Web of Science. Only studies pub- lished in peer-reviewed journals written in English language were considered. Four manuscripts were classified as eligible with 88 total participants, with an average of 57.1 years old. Quality appraisal classified two studies as high quality investigations while two with low quality. Results were summarized in the following domains: “CIPN symptoms”, “Static balance control”, “Dynamic balance control”, “Quali- ty of life and Physical function”. Results Specific exercise protocols were able to counteract common symptoms of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) during chemotherapy treatments. Significant improvements were detected on postural control. Additionally, patients’ quality of life and inde- pendence were found ameliorated after exercise sessions, together with reductions on altered sensations and in other peripheral neu- ropathy symptoms. Combined exercise protocols including endurance, strength and sensorimotor training showed larger improvements. Conclusions Exercise prescriptions for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy with CIPN symptoms should be recommended since these exercise interventions appeared as feasible and have been demonstrated as useful tools to counteract some common side effects of chemother- apeutic agents.
