Strength After Breast Cancer

Hutchinson Health’s Strength After Breast Cancer Program

“I learned through the Strength ABC program that after breast cancer treatment, it is safe to return to exercise to help strengthen my arm, as long as it is a slow, progressive exercise program. One of the greatest lessons for me was that I needed to start slow and with a lower weight than what I was using previously. The therapists instructed me on how to slowly and safely progress the weights and reps to prevent injury. They taught me the signs and symptoms to watch for with my body when progressing with the exercises.” ~ Ronda Matthias
