Recovering from a serious injury, illness, or surgical procedure is often a long and difficult process, and, in many cases, result in extensive bed rest and an overall reduction in physical activity. This inactivity can lead to a decline in function or deconditioning of the body.
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:
Depending on the severity of deconditioning, these effects can interfere with everyday activities, such as walking, leaving the house, or running errands. In more extreme cases, they can make it challenging to do basic self-care such as getting to the bathroom, showering, or getting dressed.
Fortunately, reconditioning rehabilitation can help minimise or even reverse these effects, allowing you to return to a level of fitness and function closer to that which you previously enjoyed by:
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.
Under the direction of a specialist rehabilitation doctor, your program can include:
"2012 was the first time I came here. The nurses even remembered me when I came back. I keep coming back because they’re good."
"I just wanted to be as well as I could for as long as I could. I wanted to get my real life back."
