Why Abdominal Rehab?
If the core muscles are key to how our bodies function all day every day, then why do we not provide rehabilitation for abdominal surgeries the same way we do for surgeries on the hip, knee, shoulder or hand?
The Tummy Team focuses on retraining the muscles of the core and teaching neutral active posture alignments prior to surgery whenever possible. Often muscle disconnect due to pain or longstanding muscle imbalance can make post-surgical recovery difficult. When we work on reconnecting and rebuilding the core prior to surgery (prehab) we can create muscle memory that dramatically accelerates the post-surgical rehab process.
Abdominal Prehab is neuromuscular re-education and therapeutic exercise focused on functional core strength and connection in preparation for abdominal surgery to assist in post-surgical recovery.
Preparing the core prior to surgery can prevent many complications and improve recovery time. If preparing for abdominal surgery is not an option, we still see a huge benefit in abdominal rehabilitation post surgery to retrain and regain the full function of the core muscles. Let us help.
