What is PREHAB?

Most people have heard of Rehabilitation, the undertaking of treatment and exercise regime following an injury. Some studies are now showing the effectiveness of undertaking Physiotherapy treatment and an exercise program designed to help reduce symptoms and strengthen a particular body area BEFORE undergoing surgery to repair the injury. This is called Prehabilitation.

Is there good benefit in PREHAB prior to surgery?

Studies have shown that those patients who underwent prehab, had a faster return to sport, better muscle function and greater ability to tolerate uneven surfaces (proprioception). Another example of this is patients requiring a Total Knee Replacement. With adequate prehab, they commence their post-operative recovery with better muscle function and often less instability. This can help them back on their feet faster with a speedier road to recovery.

How will PREHAB help me?

Prehabilitation is an exercise program undertaken prior to surgery designed to:

      • Improve general fitness and weight control
      • Increase strength and range of motion of both upper and lower limbs
      • Increase balance, endurance and joint awareness
      • Increase both core abdominal and upper body strength for greater control of gait aids
