Pink Ribbon Program (Post-Operative Workout Enhancing Recovery)
It is proven that a good outlook and strong mind improves recovery time
Creating strength, self-esteem and enhancing quality of life to breast cancer survivors
From one survivor to another
Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You're probably exhausted, your arm may be painful and swollen, and the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that's exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors. Pilates exercises help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent or several years ago and accommodates all fitness levels.
