What Does a Gym Rehabilitation Program Involve?
When you visit Lane Cove Physiotherapy, we will take you through a comprehensive consultation, including a full physical assessment, goal setting, baseline measurements, and the development of your personally tailored Gym Rehabilitation Program that is specific to your needs and goals. After this, we will outline the various factors influencing your recovery, allowing us to develop an individual exercise program that reflects those factors, aiding your recovery further. All of our tailored gym rehab programs include continual re-assessment and modification to ensure you have optimal return to a full and healthy life and that your goals are being consistently met.
Why Prehab is Important for Improving Recovery After Surgery
Pre-surgical rehabilitation or prehab for short is the concept that can get your body into the best shape it can be in before your surgery. Better in, better out. A well-designed pre-surgery body strengthening regime can shave weeks of time and pain off your post-surgical recovery. In fact, the physical shape your affected area is in is one of the strongest predictors of the chances of a fully successful recovery. It is likely that you have pain and weakness operating in tandem leading up to surgery, but you’re going to need every ounce of strength you’ve got to recover fully. In prehab, your local physio will help you build strength and stability where you need it most to ensure you get the most out of your rehabilitation.
Benefits of Gym Rehabilitation
Gym rehabilitation offers many benefits for those looking to recover from injury or surgery. Some of these benefits include:
Combining Gym Rehabilitation with other Forms of Exercise
While gym rehabilitation can be an effective standalone exercise program, it can also be combined with other forms of exercise to create a well-rounded fitness regimen. Combining different exercises can provide numerous benefits, such as reducing the risk of overuse injuries, improving overall strength and fitness, and preventing boredom from a repetitive exercise routine.
If you are interested in combining gym rehabilitation with other forms of exercise, it is important to create a balanced workout routine that targets different muscle groups and includes both cardiovascular and strength training exercises. For example, you could incorporate yoga or Pilates to improve flexibility and core strength, or add weight training or cardio to target specific muscle groups or improve cardiovascular fitness.
To structure a balanced workout routine that includes gym rehabilitation, it is best to consult with a qualified physiotherapist who can assess your needs, recommend exercises, and guide you through a safe and effective workout program.
Can gym rehabilitation help with weight loss?
Gym rehabilitation can be a valuable tool for weight loss, as it can help you build muscle, improve your metabolism, and burn fat. By incorporating a variety of exercises and techniques, your physiotherapist can design a program that is tailored to your specific goals and needs.
If you’re recovering from an injury, looking to improve your physical health or fitness, or simply want to maintain your overall wellbeing, gym rehabilitation can be an excellent tool to help you achieve your goals. With its focus on safe, effective, and individually tailored exercise programs, gym rehabilitation at Lane Cove can provide you with the support and guidance you need to overcome any obstacles and reach your full potential.
