Recovering from a major injury, illness, or surgery can be tough and take a long time. Often, it means spending a lot of time in bed and not being as active. This lack of activity can lead to a decrease in how well your body works and overall physical weakening or deconditioning.
The impact of deconditioning
Deconditioning refers to the changes in the body that can occur during a period of inactivity. The changes happen in the heart, lungs, and muscles resulting in:
The impact of deconditioning can vary in severity and may impede daily activities like walking, running errands, or leaving the house. In more severe cases, it can significantly hinder basic self-care tasks such as using the bathroom, showering, or dressing.
Thankfully, reconditioning rehabilitation offers the potential to mitigate or reverse these effects, enabling you to regain a level of fitness and function similar to what you previously enjoyed. This is accomplished through:
An expert multidisciplinary team, skilled in neurological, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions.
A program that is tailored to your unique needs and goals.
A genuine partnership between you and your clinical team so you have choice and control.
A warm and friendly environment where you feel safe and cared for.
