Our Rehabilitation Team help athletes and those recovering from operations or other trauma with a series of treatments and exercise regimes. This helps reduce pain, promote movement of stiffened muscles, prevents recurring damage and restores normal function to the injured site.
Various techniques used in rehabilitation have significance of their own in improving physical performance and restoring athletes to normal activity:
- Stretching and bending exercises improve flexibility of the injured muscles
- Massage techniques relieves the tension of the muscles and improves the blood flow to the injured area
- Stability exercises restores the functions and movements of the broken or injured joints
The Rehab Team work in conjunction with our osteopaths, our Sports Injuries team and our podiatrist. Having competed at a high level in a variety of sports and activities, all our practitioners have experience of coping with injuries and the disabling effect these can have. Rehabilitation programmes are an important part of recovery and can heal injury faster while maintaining balance with the rest of the body.
