A Home-Based Walking Program and rTMS in Helping Breast Cancer Survivors Get More Physical Activity


Study Number
72218
Phase
Pilot
Purpose

This trial studies how well a home-based walking program, with or without repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, works in helping breast cancer survivors get more physical activity. Physical activity has been shown to improve health outcomes and quality of life among breast cancer survivors and can help lessen certain side effects of treatment such as fatigue, depression, and treatment-related weight gain. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation is a procedure that uses electromagnets to stimulate brain activity. Using rTMS with a home-based walking program may help breast cancer survivors get more physical activity.
