Empowering Recovery: The Benefits of Pilates for Breast Cancer Survivors

From the stories people have shared with me, it is often the case that getting back into physical fitness can be the last thing on your mind after diagnosis, treatment and, surgery, those same people have also shared with me that they are thank-full that they took that step.

Pilates can aid in physical rehabilitation from surgeries. Pilates offers a gentle yet effective way to regain strength, flexibility, and mobility in affected areas, aiding in the physical rehabilitation process.

Coping with a breast cancer diagnosis and undergoing surgery can take a toll on one's emotional well-being. Engaging in regular exercise like Pilates has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression while promoting feelings of empowerment and control.

Regular exercise, such as Pilates, plays a key role in promoting long-term health and help you adopt healthy lifestyle habits that support your ongoing well-being and reduce the risk of future health complications.

The Pink Ribbon Programme was created specifically to support those recovering from breast Cancer surgeries, tailor made to help you regain range of motion and functional movement in your affected area. The Pink Ribbon Programme gives you the opportunity to make a choice to take back some control of your body and over a situation you have little control over.

I trained in this specialism after someone close to me was diagnosed and I wanted to help and support them on their road to recovery. Then Covid hit the world and found myself unable to get to the people who needed it, so put my big girl pants on and got infront of a camera to create a patient guide of the Pink Ribbon Programme online for you to access anytime, anywhere and when you feel most up to it.

So here it is, the Patient guide for those recovering from Breast cancer surgery.

I hope you find this useful and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
