Pink Ribbon Pilates Program at the University Physician Center
The Pink Ribbon Pilates Program is a therapeutic exercise program designed for patients after breast cancer surgery. It works in conjunction with your doctor’s recommendations for an exercise program. It helps strengthen the shoulders, chest, back and abdominal muscles, allowing you to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery.
In addition to our formal groups and classes, we also offer additional programs, therapies, and access to specialists.
Our support services include:
- A patient resource library
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Integrative holistic medicine specialists
- Lymphedema specialists
- Social workers
We also participate in:
- American Cancer Society Program: Look Good Feel Better
