This is the first exercise intervention study in cancer patients with spinal metastases at high risk of fracture. The intervention proved safe and feasible, given adaptations due to pain, immobility and weakness. Now, larger studies are needed to confirm safety and investigate exercise effects on clinical endpoints. @Patients: Please do not try these exercises alone but under 1:1 supervision by a qualified and experienced exercise professional only!
