Exercise can be extremely beneficial for the recovery of cancer patients, but there are critically important factors to consider. In this ACE LiveClass led by Andrea Leonard, a 33 year cancer survivor and the founder and president of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute, we will cover a broad range of considerations, and take a step-by-step approach through the assessment process and workout programming, including absolute contraindications to exercise.

You will learn:

• How cancer surgery and treatment impacts physical mobility, posture, activities of daily living and survivorship

• How to understand the signs and symptoms of upper and lower extremity lymphedema and how to prevent and manage them

• How to develop a comprehensive therapeutic exercise program to help correct muscle imbalance and range of motion limitations while addressing other acute and chronic treatment side-effects

Reviews

Great Intro course to Understanding various factors in working with Cancer Patients. -Course went through Upper Exercises but didn't go through Abdominal or Lower Level Exercises. Also The Questions for the Quiz (50%) of them didn't make any sense. Too Ambiguous / Not Clear enough as to what was being asked. When dealing with Cancer Patients.....These questions should be more clear and fine-tuned so there is no confusion in the information that was presented, especially working with Vulnerable Exercise Populations.

Would like to take additional online courses in this segment.
