What is Injury Rehabilitation?
Injury rehabilitation is an important part of rectifying any occurring injury or weakness present in the body. As well as receiving hands on specialist treatment, rehabilitation is a key component to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state.
What does it do?
Injury rehabilitation is a structured personalised course of exercise therapy designed to strengthen and restore the normal function of muscles and joints.
Rehabilitation increases flexibility and range of movement to help reduce pain and disability and can improve co-ordination and balance of the affected area, helping you return to pre injury function as quick as possible.
It involves tailored injury prevention advice and can include prescribed core stability and muscle strengthening exercises, as well as stretches for muscular imbalances, tightness and weakness.
This helps decrease susceptibility to further related injuries and ensures reoccurring injury episodes are prevented.
Who can benefit?
Anyone who has sustained an injury, or has an area of muscular weakness that is affecting everyday life, will benefit greatly from rehabilitation.
Commonly rehabilitated areas include
- Post operative injuries such as ligament reconstruction and joint replacements
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle and tendon strains
- Back instability
- Core weakness
- Acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries
