Abstract

 Purpose: Muscle weakness, pain, sensory impairment, limitation of motion are the most problem after BREAST CANCER treatment. The aim of this study was to determine an effect of 8-weeks of yoga on a range of motion in the BREAST CANCER women with mastectomy.Methods: Twenty-four patients with BREAST CANCER between age of 47 to 65 years were divided randomly into two groups: experimental and control groups. Experimental group performed yoga training 2 times a week for 8 weeks, while the control group did not perform any program. RANGE OF MOTION OF SHOULDER is evaluated before and after 8 weeks with goniometer. In order to analyze the data, T-dependent and T-independent tests were performed. The significant level was set at P<0.05.Results: The results of this study showed significant improvement in rates of range of motion in flexion, extension, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation in the experimental group (P<0.05). However, significant reductions were observed in the control group (P>0.05).Conclusion: From the findings of the present study, we may conclude that YOGA EXERCISEs increases upper extremity range of motion and ultimately improves shoulder function, therefore, exercising yoga is recommended for people with cancer.
