Five forms of help required - Rehabilitation

REHABILITATION

Rehabilitation/ Strength & Conditioning involves physical and mental retraining of the neuromuscular/skeletal system. This is a progressive/stepped approach, with a focused goal to re-establish normal function.

Prehab / Rehab / Strength & Conditioning

Exposing the body (joints and tissues) to progressive loads builds resilience. This is a measure to reduce the risk of injury.
This can be achieved through:

  • progressive resistance training (ie. weights)
  • mobility training (ie. movement)
  • cardio-vascular exercise (ie. walk, run, cycle)

Prehabilitation and/ or Strength & Condition (S&C) are the names given to performing these exercises. The goal of these exercises is to apply the extra tissue resilience  into a chosen sport or occupation.

If we get injured we want to return to our previous ability levels so we use a rehabilitation plan. This brings us from the low-functional level of being injured, working in conjunction with the healing phases, back to where we were pre-injury / pre-pain.
