WHY IS REHAB SO IMPORTANT?
If you have injured yourself (either acute injuries or chronic) or you have had orthopaedic surgery you need to strengthen the muscles, joints and movement patterns. This is so you return to full normal function, with no symptoms, and as low a risk as possible for re-injury. Rest and passive treatments are not enough. If you do not rehabilitate the injured tissue or surgically repaired tissue with exercise, you will be left with weak, non-remodelled scar tissue which is vulnerable and will fail in the future causing re-injury.
We will teach you your rehab program, and email you the detailed plan. You can perform the rehab program in our gym 1 on 1 with your physio, individually at home/ at your gym, or a combination of the two.
A detailed rehab program is the most effective way to recovery from surgery or an injury. You will rehabilitate the injured area with mobility, stability and strengthening exercises. You will also address deficiencies and imbalances that may have contributed to the injury/impairment with targeted corrective and rehab exercises.
You will be guided back to exercise and your sport or physical activity (or just back to normal life function!) with careful progressions, based on tissue and surgery healing timeframes and achievement of certain progression criteria e.g. strength/capacity/ROM testing results.
You will eventually be fully cleared to return to your sport or physical activity, and have a maintenance program for ongoing injury prevention.
