Why is it important to do preventative rehabilitation?

Preventative rehabilitation is where a physiotherapist assesses your movements and determines where your deficits lie. From here they are able to give you strategies to help prevent an injury from occurring.

You don’t have to be an athlete to partake in this rehabilitation. Anyone at any age can do this.

Here are a few examples:

Example 1: You are a 40 year old office worker that spends most of the day sitting at a desk. You see one of our physiotherapists who assesses and discusses strategies to help prevent neck pain and lower back pain. If you are willing, the physiotherapist will incorporate one or more exercises that can help prevent certain conditions from occurring.

Example 2: You are an athlete and you come see one of our physiotherapists who can see how you move in your chosen sport. They will do a variety of mobility, balance and strength tests to see if you have any imbalances. By doing these tests you can help prevent overuse and potential season ending injuries. You don’t have to be competing at a high level as well! Preventative rehabilitation can be applied to any individual of any level.

So if you are about to start running, are getting into a new sport or a manual job, make sure you see one of our experienced physiotherapists for full assessment!
