Why should I do Exercises Pre-Surgery?
It is so natural to want to adopt a protective posture post breast cancer surgery, or not want to use the affected arm. This can contribute to loss of shoulder range of movement and function.
Why not learn correct postural movement patterns prior to surgery to assist your recovery?
Here are 3 simple exercises selected from the Bounce Back Foundation Program which are perfect for you in the pre-surgery stage.
The shoulder squeeze is a small movement to train shoulder blade engagement
The bicep curl is a strengthening exercise to recommended for breast cancer patients to do prior to surgery or 3-4 weeks and beyond post-surgery.
