Rehabilitation is a critical step in overcoming many diseases. Too often it is an aspect that is overlooked by the specialists and by the patients themselves, who are having to deal with the disease again after a long time because they are not rehabilitated properly.
“The functional rehabilitation is the restoration of the correct function of a body part into the systemic totality of the body itself.”
The term Functional Rehabilitation is a set of subsequent treatments to physiotherapy work which aim the return to normal sporting and / or daily activities.
Re-educate literally means educating a function again, then it assumes you’ve missed the proper use of a system that must be re-educated to normal function.
Unfortunately, whatever the discipline practiced, the athlete is exposed to the risk of injury.
The reasons that give rise to the trauma can be different: a game unfortunate collision, poor physical fitness, a fall etc.. When athletes are injured their degree of activity suffers a collapse, which obviously depends on the extent of trauma (mild, moderate or severe), but also by how high was the ability of the athlete’s performance itself.
Obtain from the functional recovery improvement or disappearance of pain is not a sufficient goal.
The objective is fully achieved only when returning a mobility and an adequate force associated to full recovery of the athlete’s cardiovascular system, all this in the shortest possible time.
The rehabilitation is faced overcoming of the phases that allow, one after the other, to overcome a number of objectives. The first phase is that of the control of pain and the inflammatory reaction (obtained with the help of the physiotherapist).
The second step is the recovery of joint function of the movement, the third is that of the recovery of the force, the fourth phase is that of the recovery of coordination, and finally the fifth step, the recovery of the athletic gesture.
An incorrect rehabilitation treatment causes a very high incidence of new lesions.
