What Is Rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation after an illness or injury is a slow step by step process which will aim to help you recover in the best possible way. The main aim of rehabilitation is to help you get moving again, regain strength, relearn skills they may have been lost or find new ways of carrying out tasks. You may want to use rehabilitation services if you have:
- A sporting injury
- Been hurt at home, whilst out and about or whilst at work.
- Had surgery
- Had an accident
- Had an illness or suffer from mental health issues
- Spent a long time in hospital
- Or other
At OpenHealth Clinic we have a team of Rehabilitation Trainers and Pilates Instructors who are responsible for helping patients get to the next level of health and feel confident in completing everyday tasks post-injury, as well as trying to minimise the reoccurrence of the injury.
OpenHealth also offers pilates as a form of rehabilitation. Pilates is a great alternative for injury rehabilitation and is one of the fastest-growing workouts in the world and is popular due to the positive impacts it will have on the body such as enhanced strength, flexibility and agility which comes with regular practice.
Pilates is a great exercise option that promotes agility and good posture by strengthening your core and toning your body. The core is the centre of your body. Pilates helps align the spinal and pelvic muscles and strengthens the body which will help to fight off any ailment or injuries.
Sports injury rehabilitation treats a range of conditions including acute sports injuries, strains, sprains, muscle-tendon, tendonitis, hand injuries, shoulder dislocation, foot or ankle dysfunction or surgery rehab. A sports injury rehabilitation will allow you to receive an accurate diagnosis from a certified specialist. The initial part of the treatment will help reduce pain and promote healing.
Once the pain and swelling are reduced, the progressive reconditioning treatment will then begin. Certain gentle exercises will be prescribed to target specific goals such as flexibility, mobility, training, coordination of balance and joint positioning. As progress is being made the athlete will be able to work with OpenHealth together towards re-established strength and conditioning.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation is critical to help ensure you return to the activities to adore as quickly yet safely as possible. We provide state of the art care for athletes of all different skill levels and ages. Although you may be injured it is important to stay in shape and use the injury as an opportunity to strengthen other areas of your body.
OpenHealth also offer sports massages in Ascot and the surrounding areas. A sports massage is a deeper form of massage which is designed to address the soft tissues of the body. Quality blood supply and the elimination of waste products associated with energy production are vital for our bodies well being.
