Coronavirus: Our protective measures

Exercise for breast cancer patients – Now as a webinar

The current times are hard for many of us, and challenging in many ways. This is especially true for patients who have been unsettled by a cancer diagnosis, who are awaiting operations or recovering from them, who must undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made many of these already difficult situations even worse. People suffer from reduced contact with others. Many of the activities people previously enjoyed are no longer possible.

We – the team of the Institute for Physical Medicine – are convinced that movement and exercise help. Exercise prevents loss of strength and general fatigue. It can reduce the side effects of the treatment, positively impact the risk of recurrence and improve general performance. Not least, it also has a calming psychological effect.

For these reasons, we have extended our services specially for breast cancer patients: We offer a training in webinar form in German that takes into account the requirements associated with the disease and the side effects of treatment.

The training takes place live at the indicated times. We will be present to answer questions and assist with the exercises.

Please consult your doctor as to whether all exercises are suitable for you or whether there are contraindications, such as instability due to metastasis. Severe problems with the musculoskeletal system, the heart or blood pressure must also be ruled out.
