The Clinical Trial Team – Belong

In a UK clinical trial, researchers examined whether exercise could improve different health outcomes among women after breast cancer surgery who are at risk for upper limb complications.

The program included stretching, strengthening, physical activity, and behavioral techniques.

It was found that the structured and progressive exercise reduced upper limb disability one-year post-treatment.
