Injury Rehabilitation can help with:
- Supply of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles
- Lymphatic drainage
- Muscle fatigue
- Recovery/Healing process
- Muscle Tone
- Pain relief
- Reduction in scar tissue
- Preventing and reducing Adhesions
Exercise is a vital part of the rehabilitation process for most injuries. Instead when a person visits a Physio or Sports Therapist, in conjunction with receiving a course of treatment, they will be set specific strengthening and flexibility exercised.
Exercises are included in rehabilitation programmes to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state and or ensure that the original cause of the injury is eliminated.
Usually, the initial stage of treatment involves reducing pain and promoting healing. Once pain and any swelling are reduced, the treatment will begin to involve more exercised. Initially this is likely to be mobility and flexibility training and then later, strengthening work.
