When we structure your training plan, the damage sustained to your tissue is taken into account, as the exercise plan tries to stimulate healing. Your training will be started with movement exercises with movements that will gradually become harder. You will also get simple balance- and stability exercises where the difficulty gradually increases. When these exercises are mastered you will start to get more strengthening exercises, that will enable you to return to work, sports or other recreational interests at the regular level.
Movement exercises aim at regaining and maintaining as much mobility as possible. In addition, they are used to make the tissue more flexible and prepare it for the subsequent exercises. Think of this process as being similar to lubricating a bicycle chain so it does not slip over if a joint is rigid.
Stability Training is extremely important and often forgotten. Stability exercises improve the balance of the body and the control of movements. This is comparable to a misaligned bicycle gear, the bike will run poorly regardless of the movement of the chain and the force you pedal with.
Strengthening exercises increase the strength of the tissue, but without proper movement and stability, you can not perform the exercises correctly and you are at risk of getting other injuries. Having an injury is the greatest risk factor for a new injury.
Stretches preserves flexibility, which helps reduce the force of the tissue and stimulates proper healing!
