Rehab Programs

Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury. This involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power and is achieved through various exercises and drills. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries.

When I have to start the rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation exercises should begin as soon as possible (after the initial inflammatory phase –72 hours) and should 'usually' be done been pain free with a few rare exceptions.
Be careful with the phrase “no pain, no gain” as in most cases this is not the case. Pain is the body’s response telling you to stop or slow down and if ignored, healing will be impaired.
For a rehab program to be successful the following tips are important:

 • Begin as soon as possible, once the initial inflammation phase has passed (usually 72 hours post injury).
• Understand why and how you are doing the exercises or treatment.
• Follow a precise but individualized exercise program to follow.

We can help you with simple Functional exercises are related to the sport or activity you are returning to. There are a number of generic exercises that can be applies to multiple sports and should be performed in the early stages of rehabilitation. However, to effectively and efficiently return to the specific sport during which the injury occurred it is important to perform exercises that replicate activities and movements in that particular sport. For example, if returning to rugby, it is important to perform drills that are used in training such as tackling or passing, riders have to focus in those muscle used to ride in Polo, Dressage or Jumping.

 Muscles, ligaments and tendons adapt to the stresses and strains that they are placed under and therefore they adapt to specific activities and sports.
