Breast, abdominal and pelvic cancer survivorship have become common chronic conditions for a number of people, especially women, due to the length women live and so find themselves living longer in survivorship. A survivor gap exists between initial intensive medical treatment and any ongoing follow-up care. The term “survivor gap” recognizes this gap in cancer care for the survivors who are “lost in transition from patient to survivor” where survivors are now out on their own.
Meet the pressing need of clients living with breast, pelvic and abdominal cancers. Discover how you can facilitate the rehabilitation of reconstruction procedures and avoid lymphedema risks. Specific benefits and contraindications of Pilates are explained. Course content also reviews structural assessment and current research on the positive rationale for exercise for cancer survivors.
