Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to determinate if therapeutic exercise with blood flow restriction (BFR) during neoadjuvant chemotherapy potentialy neurotoxic could prevent the onset of chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) comparing to usual care.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Neoplasm Other: PRESIONA Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
CIPN is a side effect of cancer therapies that nowadays has no solution, so our intention is to carry out a preventive therapy against the onset of CIPN. The nature of the studies that try to prevent is very diverse, but one of the wide tools is therapeutic exercise. In this case we intend to combine therapeutic exercise with BFR to obtain a pre-conditioning effect that protects intraepidermal fibers from exposure to the chemotherapy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PRESIONA
An adapted therapeutic exercise program using blood flow restriction cuff perfomed during chemotherapy treatment. 24-36 sessions of 1 hour multimodal components: aerobic, strength and fascial release exercises. Frequency will be adapted to the recovery status of each patient.
Other: PRESIONA
Aerobic and strength exercise combined with restricction blood flow cuffs during chemotherapy treatment
Other Names:
  • Experimental group
  • Therapeutic exercise combined with blood flow restriction

No Intervention: Control group
Patients undergoing usual medical treatment



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient-reported CIPN symptoms [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    Symptoms across to sensory, motor and automic domains will be measured using the questionnarie the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-CIPN twenty-item scale. The total questionnaire has a score from 0 to 100, in which a higher score indicates increased symptom burden.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Breast cancer quality of life [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by European Organization for Research and Treatment of Breast Cancer-Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire. The total questionnaire has a score from 0 to 100, in which a higher score indicates increased quality of life.

  2. CIPN severity [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by clinical version of The Total Neuropathy Score. Each item is scored from 0 to 4, with the total score ranging from 0 to 24 points; a higher score indicates greater neuropathy severity.

  3. Quality of sleep [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index that is a self-rated questionnaire which assesses sleep quality and disturbances. The global score, with a range of 0-21 points, "0" indicating no difficulty and "21" indicating severe difficulties.

  4. Mood Assessment [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by Scale for Mood Assessment. The scale tries to assess four moods; anxiety, angerhostility, sadness-depression, and happiness. Itd subscale is scory from 0 to 10, a higher score in the EVEA subscales would indicate that the respondent has a higher level of sad-depressed, anxious, angryhostile, and happy mood, respectively.

  5. Pain in hands and feet [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by visual analogue scale. From 0 to 10, a higher score is a worse subjective pain in hands and feet.

  6. Touch Detection Thresholds [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by Semmes-Weinstein filaments (SWMs)

  7. Handgrip strength test [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by TKK5101 Grp-D dynamometer (Takeya, Tokyo, Japan)

  8. General physical functioning and mobility [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assessed by the 6 minutes walking test. A greater distance (meters) covered over 6 min indicates greater mobility and general functioning.

  9. Body composition [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 12 weeks (after intervention) ]
    assesseb by bioimpedance (InBody)
