A relatively recent trend ‘prehab’ looks to prevent injuries from occurring and reduce the incidence of injury through training programs. They primarily focus on core stability, co-ordination, strength and balance work through the body, incorporating sports specific exercises. ‘Prehab’ tends to be implemented in pre-season and progressed and adapted as the sporting season goes on. Recent studies have shown for ‘prehab’ programs to be effective in reducing the occurrence of injuries.
We thoroughly recommend patient to prehab before having an operation to ensure the best results post-surgery.
