Pre & Post Breast Surgery

Pre- and Post-Breast Surgery Rehabilitation

Breast surgery can impair the use of the arm because of weakness and muscle tightness. Specialized rehabilitation therapy can improve range of motion, strength and flexibility of the arm to return to improved function. Our referral-based rehabilitation services consist of:

  • Preoperative teaching class: This patient education group class will discuss the lymphatic system, demonstrate exercises to perform after surgery and perform a brief assessment of the arm(s).
  • Post operative rehabilitation, including:
    • Post operative patient assessment
    • Exercises to improve range of motion, strength and flexibility
    • Lymphedema program if indicated

Pre-op Breast Surgery Evaluation

Classes are held from 9:30 - 11 a.m. at the Medical Center Pavilion. Please check-in on the 2nd floor. For more information call 210-358-2710.
