Understanding Injury Rehab

Being injured can be a very frustrating and disappointing situation for most people as it can feel like you have no control over your injury. Working with a Kinesiologist to treat your injury can be a different experience as you might not know what to expect. Although every injury is different, there are a few things that Kinesiologists normally do to assess fitness. The following components are all important:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Muscular and cardiovascular endurance
  • Coordination
  • Agility

A Kinesiologist will first evaluate you completely and assess your injury. They will then prepare an appropriate active rehab plan that is catered to you and your injury. This program could include exercises, stretches and rehabilitation movements specific to your sport or injury.

Everything done in an injury rehab session will re-teach your muscles the proper way to function. Using a progression of exercises your muscles will be able to work more effectively during injury healing and prevention.
