What is Exercise Rehabilitation?

Exercise Rehabilitation is often used in conjunction with Osteopathic Treatments such as Traditional Osteopathy and Shockwave Therapy to relieve pain, promote soft-tissue healing and improve and restore muscle and joint function and flexibility. The aim of Exercise Rehabilitation is to restore muscle and joint flexibility through a series of targeted exercises which have prescribed by an Osteopath or healthcare professional. Research has shown that targeted exercises used in conjunction with osteopathic treatment may hasten the body’s healing process and can reduce the risk of the injury or painful condition recurring in the future.

What are the Benefits of Exercise Rehabilition?

Exercise Rehabilitation can be beneficial in treating a wide-range of injuries and muscular-skeletal disorders and can be an effective way of reducing painful and dehabilitating symptoms. In addition, Exercise Rehabilitation is a good way of improving an individuals core strength and mobility. In particular, those suffering from sports injuries such as achilles tendonitis or plantar facillitas, back and lower back pain and arthritis may benefit from using Exercise Rehabilitation in conjunction with their Osteopathic Treatments.

Individuals recovering from orthopaedic surgery and those seeking to return to work after an injury or who are prevented from enjoying a hobby such a golf or tennis may also benefit from following an Exercise Rehabilitation Program. More generally, exercise rehabilitation provides many people with the opportunity of leading a pain-free and more active life.

Exercise Rehabilitation at the How Clinic Edinburgh

Exercise Rehabilitation forms an integral part of osteopathic treatment at the How Clinic.  Osteopath Helen How is experienced in diagnosing those conditions where the inclusion of an Exercise Rehabilitation program would speed recovery and restore mobility and functionality and where applicable, patients are prescribed an individually formulated Exercise Rehabilitation program in addition to their treatment.  The programs are carefully formulated to take into account a patients specific diagnosis, treatment schedule, medical history and lifestyle requirements to ensure optimum efficacy.

In order to monitor progress and ensure that exercises are being completed correctly, each patient is given their own log in to their Exercise Rehabilitation program via the Physitrack Exercise Rehabilitation App. The App gives the patient the opportunity to view and follow carefully narrated videos showing the correct way to complete each exercise sequence.  The App also allows progress and concerns to be monitored by Helen in-between osteopathic treatments.
