“Movement is life”
Active therapy is a therapeutic approach that involves the patient’s active participation in their own healing or change process. Unlike PHYSIOTHERAPY, where the therapist provides most of the interventions, in active therapy through exercise and movement an active and collaborative role is played.
Sports readaptation after an injury is of vital importance to ensure a complete and safe recovery, and to help our patient to return to participate in their sporting activity effectively.
Sports readaptation is key to a complete recovery. Strengthens muscles, improves flexibility and prevents future injuries. It also rebuilds confidence and facilitates a safe return to sport. In addition, it can improve athletic performance. Professional supervision is essential.
Sports rehabilitation adjusts to those individual needs to ensure optimal recovery. We must take into account factors such as the severity of the injury, previous physical condition and personal goals.
The personalization of the rehabilitation program helps to address the specific needs of each individual, allowing a recovery adapted to their particular situation.
Current technology makes it possible to adapt therapeutic exercise programs at home to all ages and technological needs. We have apps, online platforms, and wearable devices that offer personalized routines and visual guides. This makes it easy to perform therapeutic exercises conveniently and effectively at home.
Individual sports rehabilitation:
It is done with the physiotherapist or physical trainer. It adapts to the specific needs of each person and focuses on their rehabilitation and physical improvement in a personalized way.
Advantages: Allows individualized attention, adapted to the characteristics and injuries of each athlete. The physical, technical and psychological aspects that need to be worked on can be addressed more precisely.
Group sports rehabilitation:
We group people who share an injury or a similar recovery goal and work together under supervision. Group sessions are held in which specific exercises can be carried out and experiences shared.
Advantages: It favors the atmosphere of companionship and support among the participants since they share similar circumstances. It can be motivating and stimulating to have the support and experience of other people who are going through similar rehabilitation processes.
Sports injuries can affect training in different ways. Here are some key points to consider in relation to sports injuries and training:
Rest and recovery: It is important to allow the body to recover properly from a sports injury before resuming full training. Rest and recovery allow tissues to repair themselves and reduce the risk of relapse.
Training adaptation: After an injury, it may be necessary to adjust the training program to avoid exercises or movements that may aggravate the injury. This involves modifying the intensity, duration, and type of exercises performed.
Rehab Work: To recover from a sports injury, it’s common to work on specific rehab exercises that help strengthen affected muscles, improve mobility, and restore normal function. These exercises are usually prescribed by health professionals, such as physical therapists.
Prevention of future injuries: Sports injuries can be related to muscular imbalances, weaknesses or technical problems. After an injury, it is important to address these problem areas through specific exercises and correct technique to prevent future injuries.
Graduality and progression: It is essential to follow a gradual progression when returning to training after injury. This involves gradually increasing the intensity and volume of exercises to allow the body to safely adapt and strengthen.
Professional supervision: It is advisable to work with health professionals, such as doctors, physical therapists or personal trainers, who can provide appropriate guidance and supervision during the recovery process and return to training.
