Exercise and Rehabilitation plans
Physiotherapists at Health2u are specifically trained in providing exercises and rehab plans to regain strength and movement after an injury or operation. These plans can also be set to correct any movement restrictions or loss of strength issues that are contributing to your pain, whether acute or chronic. There also specific plans to manage conditions such as osteoporosis and parkinsons disease.
At Health2u we are also able to provide you with access to our awesome Physitrack app and exercise plan. Once the physiotherapist sets you an exercise plan you will receive a code to access your plan through the smart phone app or your computer. The easy to follow videos help to motivate you to do your exercises safely when your physiotherapist is not there.
What are Rehab Plans
A rehab plan after an injury or surgery is always advised to be taught by a physiotherapist. This is because they will fully assess you first before teaching the exercises and then teach ones that are safe for you to do. At each physiotherapy session in your rehab plan the physiotherapist will check you are doing the exercises properly and progress you onto more difficult exercises when ready. They can then go through the exercises with your personal trainer if you are keen to do them also as part of your gym routine. Our physiotherapists do need to see you doing the exercises with the personal trainer to make sure they are being carried out safely. Otherwise you could cause yourself further injury.
As well as teaching you exercises there are other treatments that the physiotherapist can do to help speed up your recovery including manual therapy, massage, walking re-education, sport re-education, advice, taping and acupuncture. We also offer specific exercise rehab plans at Health2u for osteoporosis, parkinsons and cardiac rehab.
How Do Rehab Programs Work?
A rehab plan is a ‘recovery plan’. The aim is to help you recover and get back to or as close to the way you were before the injury, condition or surgery you have or have had. The injury may be a result of of sport, falling over or another accident. Conditions may include stroke or Parkinsons Disease for example. The surgery may be surgery from choice or as a result of having an accident. Some of the plans we offer include ACL rehab plans and cardiac rehab plans for heart surgery.
