This might alsobegin before, or immediately after, surgery. The rehabilitative process is therefore managed by amulti-disciplinary team, including physicians, physiotherapists,psychologists, nutritionists, and athletic trainers, amongstothers. This book considers the three phases of rehabilitation: painrelief, protection of the affected area and limitation of tissuedamage; limitation of impairment and recovery of flexibility,strength, endurance, balance and co-ordination; and finally thestart of conditioning to return to training and competition.
