After an injury or surgery, an exercise conditioning program will help you return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle. Following a well-structured conditioning program will also help you return to sports and other recreational activities.
What kind of patient are you?
Whether you are a professional athlete, an inactive adult, young sportsperson, or you simply got involved in an auto accident...we will prepare a tailored and individualized rehabilitation program that better fits your needs and lifestyle.
We mainly focus in 4 phases of rehabilitation:
- Management of pain, inflammation, and swelling
- Focus on improvement of range of motion and flexibility
- Recovery of Strength
- Maintenance and Nutrition
This is a general conditioning program that provides a wide range of exercises. To ensure that the program is safe and effective for you, it should be performed under your doctor’s supervision. Talk to Dr. Da Rocha about which exercises will best help you meet your rehabilitation goals.
Strengthening the muscles that support your lower leg, foot, and ankle will help keep your ankle joint stable. Keeping these muscles strong can relieve foot and ankle pain and prevent further injury.
Stretching the muscles that you strengthen is important for restoring range of motion and preventing injury. Gently stretching after strengthening exercises can help reduce muscle soreness and keep your muscles long and flexible.
