Core Tip

Core Tip: With the increasing incidence and recurrence rate of colorectal cancer (CRC), it is essential to study more comprehensive measures for its treatment and prevention, such as cognitive-behavioral intervention, exercise intervention, and the combination of biofeedback therapy. In this study, CRC patients were treated with 12 wk of biofeedback therapy combined with Baduanjin exercise intervention training to observe the changes in patients’ quality of life and gastrointestinal hormone levels and to explore the clinical value of biofeedback therapy combined with Baduanjin exercise from the overall perspective, which will be vital for the future research on the treatment strategies of CRC.
