WHAT IS EXERCISE REHABILITATION?
Exercise rehabilitation can be described as the process of regaining full function following an injury or illness. It involves restoring an individual's musculoskeletal strength, flexibility and endurance through the power of exercise.
Exercising regularly is one of the most important aspects of our daily lives. Being fit and active can prevent a wide range of health problems, as well as being effective in relieving pain, improving strength and mobility and helping to improve athletic performance.
Exercise has been found to be extremely effective for patients suffering from conditions such as arthritis, low back pain, neurological problems, orthopaedic injuries, cardiac and pulmonary disease, stroke and traumatic brain injuries.
As well as having some fantastic effects on our physiological well-being, exercise can be extremely beneficial to our psychological health by enhancing our mood, reducing stress and improving sleep.
To enhance and speed up your rehabilitation, your practitioner will provide you with a bespoke exercise program, tailored specifically to your individual needs and goals. This is to help restore any physiological deficits by improving the function of muscles, bones and joints and addressing any neuromuscular imbalances in your body following injury.
