What is Prehabilitation?
Prehabilitation has the objective to build strength and stability around areas responsible for the foundation on which movement is built. Prehab can refer to a personalized exercise program that provides sports specific focused exercises and activities.
Who Should Prehab?
Participants of all levels, from those who are just starting a fitness regime to the more advanced athlete should include prehabilitation in their training program.
“Exercise Is Medicine”
– American College Of Sports Medicine
Our prehab prevention program is designed to improve overall performance with less likelihood of injury. The process begins with a full assessment/prescreen by a Registered Physiotherapist.
Next, a Certified Personal Trainer completes a Functional Movement Screen™. The FMS is an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality for clients and athletes. By performing specific tasks, the trainer observes movements to determine the strengths and weakness of the client.
With a collaboration of both assessments, a prehabilitation program is created. The program will focus on the areas of weakness, ensuring that each participant is prepared for his/hers upcoming season or fitness goal. The program will use our unique equipment such as the Fitwall™ and the V2 Max Vertical Reformer.
Pre Rehabilitation Prior To Surgery
Goals of Pre-Surgical Rehabilitation
• Shorten length of hospital stay
• Achieve independence with mobility faster
• Get vertical sooner and recover faster
Scientific Evidence For Pre Hab
A study at New England Baptist Hospital, and Harvard Medical School, found that knee and hip-replacement surgery patients who had participated in a structured exercise program prior to their surgeries reduced their odds of needing inpatient rehab by 73%.
