Exercise Rehabilitation Templestowe


What does Exercise Rehabilitation mean?

Exercise rehabilitation is a tailored approach using different types of exercise programs in the treatment and recovery process in physiotherapy. It is a crucial aspect of physiotherapy management in those suffering from different physical conditions, including sport injuries.

What is the importance of Exercise Rehabilitation?

Exercise rehabilitation is a vital component in the recovery process for individuals dealing with musculo-skeletal, cardio-respiratory or neurological conditions, as well as athletes suffering from sports injuries. Effective rehabilitation not only addresses the physical aspects of an injury but also considers psychological and biomechanical factors to ensure a comprehensive recovery. At Med1 Clinic, our Templestowe Physiotherapy Centre specialises in exercise rehabilitation in Templestowe Lower and surroundings, offering tailored programs to help you regain strength, functionality, and confidence. A very common application of Exercise Rehabilitation is in sport-related injuries which will be detailed below:

What our physio does in the Management and Rehabilitation of Sports Injuries

4-Phase Progression

The primary approach in managing sports injuries involves identifying and treating the underlying cause of the injury, attending to the body structure (dysfunction), and the relevant pain. Athletes should aim to continue their sport in a modified form, if possible, to maintain physical conditioning and mental engagement. There are 3 main aspects of rehabilitation in sport injury: Mobility, Strength, and Function. Rehabilitation exercises should mimic the demands of the sport as closely as possible. This involves working the body while maintaining sport-specific positions and movements. Understanding the sport’s postural, biomechanical, and physical demands, as well as the psycho-social aspects enhances the physiotherapist’s ability to diagnose and manage injuries, effectively.

Imagery Techniques

Post-injury, many athletes fear re-injury. Addressing physical and psycho-social skills is crucial for effective rehabilitation. Cognitive imagery techniques are employed to help athletes rehabilitate by using all their senses, particularly the kinesthetic sense, to rehearse the sport mentally.

Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

Early postoperative rehabilitation is essential and may continue for three to six months, or even up to 12 months. The return of strength and functional capacity is crucial for final clinical outcomes. Maintaining a rehabilitation exercise program prescribed by a physiotherapist is advisable even after returning to training and competition.
By understanding these aspects, clinicians can better support injured athletes through their recovery process, ensuring both physical and mental readiness to return to their sport.
At Med1 Clinic, our exercise rehabilitation programs are designed to facilitate comprehensive recovery from sports injuries. By addressing both physical and psychological aspects, we aim to help athletes and individuals achieve optimal recovery and return to their activities with confidence.
