Rehabilitation Physiotherapy can help individuals regain strength and mobility after an injury or surgery.

Prehabilitation, also known as “prehab,” is a proactive approach to injury prevention and rehabilitation. It involves engaging in exercise, stretching, and other physical activities to strengthen the body before an injury occurs. Prehabilitation is commonly used by athletes who want to prevent injuries and improve their performance, but it can also be beneficial for those who are about to undergo surgery.Prehabilitation programs are typically tailored to an individual’s specific needs and goals. They may include exercises to improve flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination.

Research has shown that prehabilitation can be an effective way to prevent injuries and improve outcomes for those who have already suffered an injury. By strengthening the body and improving overall health, individuals are better equipped to handle the physical demands of daily life and recover more quickly from injuries.
