Pre-Hab/PostRehab

Are you or someone you know in treatment for an injury? Have you completed treatment and entered the post-rehab phase? Are you headed towards your next injury?

Nagging pains, problems, and injuries involving muscles and joints are an inevitable fact of life. Joint replacement surgeries are increasingly common. The good news is that a carefully designed fitness program can actually reduce the risk of injury, speed recovery, and prevent re-injury. Choose the wrong exercises, however, and you could be setting your self up for future problems.

These postings discuss pre-hab and post-rehab - specialized areas of training that require close work between client, trainer, and often physical therapists and doctors. However, once the issues are identified, your problems can be fairly easy to address.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and to suggest future topics.
