"Breast Cancer Survivor Exercise Class"

Loss of shoulder strength, range of motion, lymphedema and reduced endurance are common side effects breast cancer survivors deal with on a regular basis. We provide free tuition to all post breast cancer surgery patients in our area who wish to participate in weight training and exercise classes with an emphasis on strength training and shoulder function.

This 8-session class is specifically designed for women who have undergone breast cancer treatment who may also have problems with lympedema. The exercises are progressive with an emphasis on strength training and shoulder function. The exercises are designed to increase the function of the lymphatic system within the impaired arm while improving the ability to participate in everyday activities with fewer limitations, thereby improving quality of life. Each participant is closely monitored by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist.
