Exercise program after breast surgery
Registration is currently open for a free exercise program for women recovering from breast cancer surgery in Woy Woy from Thursday, February 9, until Thursday, March 29.
The eight week program incorporates gentle floor and hydrotherapy exercises and provides the opportunity for relaxation and information sharing among women with similar experiences.
A study published this month in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship by University of Missouri's Sinclair School of Nursing researchers highlighted the benefits of exercise for women who have experienced breast cancer, including those who developed lymphoedema.
The Encore Program was created to improve movement, flexibility and strength after breast cancer surgery and can help to reduce the potential risk of lymphoedema and assist in the management of lymphoedema.
Phone 02 9285 6264 to register.
