    What do sessions include?

    • An initial screening by a physical therapist, as well as a follow up appointment at the end of the program to measure individual progress.
    • Rehabilitation sessions led by Sunflower Wellness Exercise Counselors that are geared towards increasing motivation, promoting behavior and healthy lifestyle change.
    • Education on weight training routines that help prevent lymphedema and increase range of motion.
    • The program includes a free resistance band and 2-3 lb. dumbbells.
