Scared to Move Your Body After Breast Cancer? Here's How to Get Started

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity. Hippocrates

If you’re like me, cancer treatments and surgeries left you afraid to move your body, feeling out of control and angry. I needed to heal, but had no idea how to rebuild my body and my confidence.

Finally, an opportunity presented itself – I found the MovingOn Rehabilitative Exercise program. Specifically designed to address the physical limitations breast cancer survivors feel after chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgical procedures, the program was tailor-made for me and I signed up immediately. 
MovingOn’s founder, Lockey Maisonneuve, is a breast cancer survivor, certified personal trainer and cancer exercise specialist. You can read the interview I did with her here (that’s Lockey in green.) MovingOn (and Lockey, who is now a dear friend) are true gifts of my cancer and I wholeheartedly endorse her program. (I’m a two-time graduate.)
Now you can move on too, because Lockey’s program is on video (and I have a surprise coming up for you, so read on!) Check it out if you’re experiencing common post-treatment discomforts such as:
  • Tightness in the chest area
  • Weakness in the back and neck area
  • Discomfort in the shoulders
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and joint pain

In the video Lockey demonstrates gentle, rehabilitative exercises designed to open up the chest area, strengthen back muscles and correct posture. These exercises can be performed in a sitting position, lying down, at home or at work.

Also, it’s very important to “CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY NEW ACTIVITY OR EXERCISE PROGRAM.” (I really mean it! I’m not a doctor and am not qualified to give medical advice. You must get an okay from your doctor before starting an exercise program, especially after cancer treatments.)
