New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
The Pink Ribbon Program is an exercise program designed specifically for post-operative breast cancer survivors. Program founder and director of the Pink Ribbon Program, Doreen Puglisi M.S., became aware of the need as she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. She used the Pink Ribbon Program to regain the range of motion as well as strength in her affected arm.
Xtend Barre New Orleans will be hosting a two day workshop on Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15, 2011 for individuals who come in contact with breast cancer survivors through Pilates, physical therapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, personal trainers, nurses, group exercise instructors and lymphedema treatment specialists. The goal of this interactive two day course is to provide the participants with a knowledge base that is essential to the successful evaluation of the breast cancer survivor, from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema and proper exercise guidelines and protocols. Evidence based practice and integration of material from the areas of functional exercise, shoulder rehabilitation and Pilates exercise will be the emphasis of the course sessions.
The Pink Ribbon Program is offered on Friday, October 14 starting at 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 15 starting at 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Workshop cost is $425 per person plus $35 for course materials.
