FIVE Ways Active Rehab Can Get You Back In The Game
Written by Ella Sargent – Kinesiologist
1. Pain Reduction and Education
Often times the greatest barrier to returning to activity is pain. Chronic pain can be something we think we just have to “live with” so we adapt our routines and decrease our activity levels because of it. In most situations, the best thing you can do for your pain is to continue moving and strengthening. Pain is a complicated topic and often is NOT an indicator of tissue damage! Booking with one of our Kinesiologists in the Active Rehab Program can help you find safe exercises to decrease your pain and increase your function.
2. Postural and Alignment correction
Most of us spend 8-10 hours at work, often in the same position for extended periods of time. Working with a Kinesiologist can give you little exercises that are easy to perform anywhere and can be great to help keep your body feeling good throughout the day. They can also give you advice about readjusting your workstation for more optimal body positioning.
3. Working around an injury Exercise Routine
You may want to get back into your gym routine, but an acute or chronic injury is holding you back. An assessment from a Kinesiologist can help analyze your movement patterns and work with you to correct them so that your injuries don’t keep you from progressing your gym routine.
4. Strengthening for General Conditioning
It is no secret that exercise is good for us, but we don’t all know how to get into it on our own. Our Kinesiologists can guide you through an individualized program that will help your reach your exercise goals. Those goals don’t have to be about going to a gym. Working with a Kin is about finding what exercises and activities work for your body so that you enjoy getting into your exercise routine!
5. Self Management Strategies
You might already have an exercise program that you are comfortable with but battle with a recurring injury that sets you back on a periodic or regular basis. Self management strategies can be given to you to incorporate into your daily routine to keep you from frequent setbacks, allowing you to progress yourself.
