Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
– Jim Rohn
Humans were not made to be sedentary. And while rest is important after an injury, staying active and maintaining your exercise and activity routine as much as possible without aggravating injured tissue is vital to a fast and complete recovery. Maintaining overall function means your body is more likely to build (and therefore repair) tissue, it increases blood flow through the body and helps essential nutrients reach the site of injury, and it has been shown to markedly reduce inflammation, which is an important phase of the injury recovery process.
Poor core stability, functional strength and inefficient movement patterns are all contributors to injury and pain, and can increase your chance of reinjury. But it’s not just about getting well. It’s about getting better. We take you past the point of recovery and into a phase where you improve your overall physical conditioning to avoid reinjury, ongoing discomfort or pain.
