Top Stretches for Breast Surgery Recovery from a Physical Therapist

Dana had the opportunity to have a private session with Amy Koslowsky of Integrative Physical Therapy. Amy specializes in breast cancer recovery and musculoskeletal issues. 

Amy received her BS/MS in Physical Therapy from the College of Staten Island and has over twenty years of experience specializing in Breast Cancer Recovery, Women’s Health and Musculoskeletal Pain + Injury. In addition to her studies as a physical therapist, Amy is certified in Holistic Nutrition from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She combines her medical training, extensive knowledge of the body + nutrition with intuitive touch and mind body practices to guide her clients towards reconnecting with their bodies.

Stretching is an extremely important practice to add to your daily routine to be on your way to better health. Even if you are in recovery and not planning on exercising, it is still important to stretch as it provides multiple benefits for your body and your mind.

Stretching daily can help improve flexibility, improve your posture and decrease your risk of injury when you do exercise. Stretching also provides your mind with a mental break. It allows you to recharge and refresh the blood flow throughout your body, resulting in a calmer and more peaceful mindset.

Follow along with the video to incorporate into your daily routine.

 

    Remember with all poses to ease in and use your breath to soften in order to create more space. Before beginning any exercise routine, consult your doctor.
