The me+™ Recovery series is designed to help guide patients, step-by-step, through their recovery after ostomy surgery. Focusing on gentle core exercises, this three-phase series is a progressive set of movements that rehabilitates the abdominal muscles and encourages physical activity so that your patients can get back to living the lives they want.

Here's what you will learn:

  • The importance of active recovery after ostomy surgery
  • How to do each movement in the foundation phase*
  • Helpful tips to bring the me+ recovery series into your practice
*We suggest you have a chair, couch or floor space available to participate
