What is 'retraining' ?
'Retraining' is short for rehabilitation training. This means that an athlete continues to train for his or her sport, even during the rehabilitation period. The rehabilitation period will no longer be a period of inactivity or inability, but become an opportunity for improving weaknesses and further development of the athlete. This however, is a very specific and individual process that needs to be closely monitored to obtain optimal results.
Why 'retraining' ?
Retraining is an individual and sport specific process. It is important to work together with the trainer and the entourage of the athlete to create a retraining plan that optimally satisfies all the needs.
