WHAT IS REATHLETISATION OF THE ATHLETE BY PROFESSIONALS?

For the athlete, competitor or not, perform the tasks of daily life is generally far from sufficient. The reathletisation is to readjust the body to specific acts of physical exercise practiced before and to the requirements to enable the athlete to return to “normal” training.

This is a process to re-train individually directly after the rehabilitation following an operation or soon after a pathology (illness or injury) or else after several months or years without active practice. It serves to make the athlete as soon as possible physically able to return to his best, whether for competition or for leisure sports.

Being more a sporting than a medical practice the reathletisation proves to be a necessary step for those who wish to resume strenuous activity after a particular injury, with a risk of relapse.

WHICH ATHLETES ARE CONCERNED BY RÉATHLÉTISATION?

  • those wishing to start a sporting activity in good physical condition
  • those who aspire to resume a sport after a long or short break
  • injured athletes, eager to regain their moves and performance before they return to the field, the pools or the gyms.

MOBILITY, TECHNICALITY AND PHYSICAL CONDITION

The reathletisation leads in parallel to the prevention of the injuries and / or a possible relapse. The physical trainer will focus primarily on a safe recovery. After an injury and / or surgery, the reathletisation is unavoidable in the protocols of treatment of sports pathologies. It provides the connection between the work of doctors, physiotherapists and the fitness coach who work together for prompt recovery.

The exercises are directly related to the trauma in order to regain mobility, optimal technicity and physical condition. Three essential factors to resume a progressive training, measured and personalised to ensure the rebalancing of muscle chains, the optimisation of power transfer or even the recovery in general.

HOW LONG DOES THE REATHLETISATION TAKE?

The duration of each phase (rehabilitation, reathletisation) is personal and really depends on the severity of the injury (simple tear, complex sprains up to rupture of the ligaments) and the location (knee, ankle, shoulder, wrist …).

The reathletisation therefore can last from weeks to months and covers the entire period of medical treatment to ensure full rehabilitation. This framework can be completed by the intervention of a nutritionist for comprehensive and controlled care.
