Strength after breast cancer – Strength ABCs

After the PAL trial, many misunderstandings and abuses leads to the onset of lymphedema in patients that had undergone breast cancer treatment, and to lymphedema worsened in patients that already had it.

The Strength ABC is a comprehensive approach that offers a safe, evidence based program for breast cancer survivors training.

Learn how to educate participants about lymphedema and risk reduction habits. Teach the Strength ABC program and how to log the progress. Motivate patients to independently perform progressive weightlifting exercises. Monitor for symptoms and changes.

Lead with logistical considerations.

Establish an efficient business model.

You can do it!
