Exercises After Breast Surgery: Wall Climb, Chicken Wing

As you recover from breast surgery, your healthcare provider will tell you when it is safe to begin exercising, what kind of exercises you should do, and how much exercise you should do. Your goal will be to regain normal range of motion and use of your arm. For your safety, use this handout only as directed by your healthcare provider or physical therapist.

These are just a couple examples of exercises that may be appropriate. Speak with your surgeon and healthcare team about what other exercises might be right for you.
