Before heading into surgery, it is important to set your body up for a quick recovery. Pre-op exercises can contribute to conditioning, strengthening, and improving flexibility; when your body has been primed, it reduces trauma from surgery. Pre-op exercise can also be very beneficial for reducing the risk of post-op complications and lessening the length of your hospital stay.
Pre-op exercise does not have to be strenuous- it can be as simple as doing reps of lifting yourself from a chair to strengthen arms and joints. With our pre-op exercise clinic, we can advise on the best workouts based on your particular case. Depending on the surgery, exercises will vary to condition the areas of focus.
The versatility of the CrossFit program allows it to be highly customizable based on ability level and goals. CrossFit exercise is also ideal for whole-body conditioning, contributing to overall health. It is an optimal regimen for pre-operative exercise because workouts can be tailored to target the area being prepared for surgery. Our highly trained advisors can work with you to determine the best CrossFit exercises for you, and get you primed for a quick post-op recovery.
