Strength ABC – Strength after breast cancer

STRENGTH AFTER BREAST CANCER

Regain your strength and functional capacity following breast cancer treatment by participating in this evidence based, rehabilitative exercise program. The program is an individualised home-based exercise regime with education, and more.

The prescribed exercise program is based on the PAL (Physical Activity and Lymphoedema) by Dr Kathryn Schmitz at the University of Pennsylvania. The program has been adopted from the PAL study based on the findings that the prescribed exercise has shown to decrease the onset of Breast Cancer Related Lymphoedema by 70%; reduces the likelihood of already developed lymphoedema worsening by 50%; build bone density; reduce recurrence of cancer, reduce body fat, improve posture, improve body image, and build body functional capacity and energy levels.   

What is the SABC Program?
An evidence based progressive stretching and strengthening program designed to build the endurance of both the lymphatic and muscular systems. This program will provide you with an individualized home exercise regimen and educate you on how to safely maintain the gains you’ve made during breast cancer rehabilitation treatment and help return you to lead an active life.

Clinically proven outcomes
Clinically shown to decrease the onset of Breast Cancer Related Lymphoedema by 70%; reduces the likelihood of already developed lymphoedema worsening by 50%; build bone density; reduce recurrence of cancer, reduce body fat, improve posture, improve body image, and build body functional capacity and energy levels.

When is SABC implemented?
After you have been cleared by your GP or Lymphoedema Therapist who’s evaluated you and completed a lymphedema screening. Participation in the program can commence if you are still undergoing breast cancer treatment.

What is involved?
Four group or individual sessions, meeting every Friday for 1 – 1 1/2 hours. Individual sessions can be scheduled on other days where suitable. Each session includes a lymphedema education lecture, a full-body stretching and strengthening program, and much more!
