Exercise rehabilitation, injury management and exercise medicine 


Exercise and rehabilitation play an integral part in everyone’s recovery from pain, injury and dealing with special populations such as clients with COPD. 

The primary goals are to help you recover faster, prevent re-injury and develop resilience. We want to get you back in the game!

Rehabilitation exercise aims to bring back full function following injury through restoring muscle strength, endurance, power, and improving flexibility. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following any injury but is often forgotten. It is really important to understand that injuries will improve and heal more successfully if an exercise plan is followed. However, every person responds differently and healing times will vary. The main thing to remember is that prevention is better than cure and a good, well thought out rehabilitation plan will help keep injuries at bay.

Furthermore, exercise rehabilitation exercise plays a key role in helping support individuals struggling with progressing exercise regimes. This may be due to acute or chronic conditions including COPD, stroke, dementia, pre and post-natal, cardiac rehabilitation and diabetes to name a few. Our specialists in exercise medicine and rehabilitation will support you make the right choices for you and any condition you may be living with. Our sessions will take place at LP Strength Academy in Wallasey, we can also visit you in your own home and routinely conduct work remotely, especially with our elite athletes.

How does exercise rehabilitation work?

Rehabilitation exercises should begin as soon as possible after the acute phase which is typically around 72 hours. Exercises should be pain free with a few rare exceptions. There are three different stages within rehabilitation that are important to stick to if returning to pain-free daily life and/or sporting activities:

  • Early stage rehabilitation: gentle exercise allowing for the damaged tissue to heal.
  • Mid stage rehabilitation: progressive loading to the muscles, tendons, bones or ligaments. This develops tensile strength producing a healed tissue that will be able to withstand the stresses and strains of everyday life and exercise.
  • Late stage rehabilitation: Exercises and drills to improve your strength, flexibility and stamina, and to stress the new tissues to ensure the body is ready for pain-free daily movement and exercise.

Combining scientifically informed assessments and rehabilitation following an injury is a fantastic way to get back to fitness quickly and to prevent further injuries from happening. Each of our consultants can put together a personalised plan for you to complete either on your own or with your therapist. Programs are adapted at every stage of your recovery to suit you and can be accessed at anytime via a bespoke application delivered to your phone.
