The Strength & Success VLOG #87
I want to talk to you about the role of the rehab coach.
For many years, you’ve got physios and medical professions that deal with injured people
and you’ve got S&C and performance coaches that deal with healthy people, people that are very comfortable working with high threshold training performance training and not having injured people
There is this space this void in the middle, that I call the rehab coach.
If you have an interest in bringing people back to full fitness, you are potentially very much in demand.
And if you’re a massage therapist, a yoga practitioner, a sports therapist an exercise therapist of some kind.
You’re missing out on an opportunity by not increasing your skill sets to become a rehab
A rehab coach is somebody who is firstly able to coach people. You need to be able to actually engage and ask questions and coach somebody from point A to point B.
Physiotherapists are not training coaching and as a consequence, they’re not necessarily that good at coaching.
So rehab coaching need to be able to coach.
They also need to have an excellent accessible repertoire of movement progressions
and regressions in all movement streams.
So that you can take somebody from being injured to full training.
Maybe you are not the Olympic weightlifting guy or girl.
Maybe you’re not the CrossFit.
Maybe you’re not the sports performance professional but you are really interested in rehabilitation and Prehabilitation.
If you speak to golfers, footballers tennis players, triathletes, cyclists, runners,
those people are excited by the prospect of not being injured and they’re intimidated by the prospect of working with elite strength coaches doing weightlifting movements
things like that. It’s scary to them.
