Pink Ribbon Programme - for Breast Cancer Survivors
Safe and Effective Exercise Post Breast Cancer Surgery and Treatment
We’re incredibly excited to be able to bring The Pink Ribbon Post Operative Rehab Programme to Chippenham. This is an exercise therapy programme specifically designed for women who have experienced breast cancer surgery and treatment, including reconstruction, to overcome the movement challenges they face and enhance their functional ability and quality of life.
As a breast cancer survivor myself I understand all too well the limitations that we’re left with following breast cancer surgery and treatment. In fact, having had no rehab whatsoever after my own treatment I discovered while certifying as a Pink Ribbon Post Rehab instructor; areas of restriction in my own mobility. However, the knowledge I gained on the course allowed me to create a personal plan which is already increasing my range of motion.
1 in 9 women are being diagnosed with breast cancer these days and so with over 200 female members at Inspire we see many women going through treatment. In fact, another of our own coaches has just joined the ranks of "breast cancer survivor" herself!
Not only did we want to make sure we’re giving our members the best advice possible we also wanted to ensure that all Chippenham ladies who have had breast cancer have somewhere safe and supportive that they can go post-surgery.
We know first-hand how important the connection is with others who understand what it’s like to go through treatment.
You can have complete confidence in this programme, in fact, the Pink Ribbon programme is already running successfully in conjunction with a number of NHS hospitals including:
- Lincoln General Hospital
- Addenbrokes Hospital
- St Lukes Cancer Centre (Royal Sussex Hospital)
- Kent – Medway Hospitals
The method is equally suitable for customers who have had recent surgery as well as those who had surgery some years ago and have not recovered strength, posture or mobility in their affected side(s).
As a Pink Ribbon member at Inspire Fitness you will receive one to one coaching with Ruth who will design a programme for you to help you regain range of movement, strength and mobility. Ultimately regaining confidence in your body and what it CAN do.
