What exactly is Injury Rehabilitation?
If you have been injured at work, playing sport or just doing something as simple as picking up the cat, your body may need some rehabilitation training.
A rehab program facilitates a quick recovery, reduces pain, promotes movement, restores normal function and prevents recurring damage to the injury.
Post surgery, we will work with your Doctor or Orthopaedic Physician, trainer or other therapists you use to achieve the best outcome for you situation. Rehab focuses on various physical activities, strength and flexibility exercises. This will help regain the range and motion of the injury or operation site.
We will show you the correct techniques so you do not re-injure yourself, and devise an exercise plan with you to optimise your healing.
What can I expect from Rehabilitation training?
Various techniques are used in a rehabilitation program and have a significance of their own in improving the physical performance and restoring you to normal activity:
- Stretching and bending exercises improve flexibility of the muscles at injured site
- Massage techniques relieves the tension of the muscles and improves the blood flow to the site of injury
- Stability exercises restore function and movement
- Resistance training using free weights, bands, machines and your own body weight to re-strengthen
