The best way to mitigate problems is to address them before they start. In this regard, the notion of ‘prehab’ has become very relevant in the world of fitness and wellness.
Prehab exercise is a way to stop big issues from happening, by mitigating them when they are small. It’s popular among individuals across the board for its capacity to address issues related to the body’s inner workings and manage them appropriately through exercise.
Prehab exercise primarily focuses on the issue of muscle imbalance and its prevalence due to the repetitive demands, strain and stress put on the body during common activities of daily living. Muscle imbalance can develop over time, and is usually the result of frequent, inefficient patterns of movement which alter the way in which the body’s muscles get used to performing their roles.
This entails an over and underuse of select muscles, and can result in inefficient movement, poor technique, as well as strains. All in all, this increases risk for injury and can make the experience of movement downright painful for those experiencing the problem.
It works to identify and correct imbalances, encouraging better movement efficiency and reducing risks for future injury associated with affected areas.
Prehab is essential to priming the body for performance and is key to preventing injuries resulting from it. It’s a way to strengthen and solidify movement patterns and efficiency, so that individuals can use their bodies to their fullest capacity.
