|Official Title:||A Pilot Study of a Strength and Balance Training Program for Persons With Oxaliplatin Induced Peripheral Neuropathy|
|Study Start Date :||July 2011|
|Primary Completion Date :||April 2016|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2016|
Experimental: Excercise and Questionnaire
12 week exercise program followed by questionnaire.
Other: 12 Week Exercise Program
Participants will be asked to take part in a one hour exercise program twice a week for 12 weeks. They will also be asked to answer questionnaires and participate in an evaluation of their strength, balance, and physical function every 4 weeks immediately following the exercise program. This evaluation will take an additional hour every 4 weeks.
- Number of Screened Patients Who Participate and Complete the Study [ Time Frame: 10 Months ]To evaluate feasibility, the percentage of patients screened to percentage enrolled in the study and the percentage enrolled to percentage that completes the study will be calculated. Patients who do not complete the study will be contacted to determine why they were unable to complete the study and the reasons will be recorded. How many sessions were attended will also be recorded.
- Number of Participants Who Experience Side Effects [ Time Frame: 10 Months ]To evaluate tolerability, at each session, data regarding any participant who was unable to complete the entire session will be recorded along with any side effects that participants report. Participants will also be asked to rate the level of exercise they perform at each session as either a) too easy b) just right c) too challenging.
- Number of Participants With Measured Improvement [ Time Frame: 10 Months ]Treatment-effect size will be evaluated by means of changes in muscle strength, balance, and neuropathy from the beginning to completion of the study.
