Prehab Cancer Exercise Program
Wellspring’s Prehabilitation (Prehab) Program uses exercise to help improve members’ endurance capacity (cardiovascular health) and muscle strength before (and during) chemotherapy treatment in preparation for upcoming breast surgery.
Evidence suggests that regular exercise in preparation to surgery can:
- Reduce treatment-related side effects
- Helps to improve mood
- Help to improve strength and stamina
- Protects brain function during chemotherapy
- Great opportunity to meet other people on a similar treatment path
To participate, you must be:
- over the age 18
- have access to a device to attend the zoom exercise class twice a week
- have a surgery scheduled or about to be scheduled as part of your treatment protocol
