Fitness Therapy

The Transitions Program is a partnership program between the YMCA of South Hampton Roads and Sentara Therapy Centers, designed to assist you with
an exercise plan that will help improve recovery from surgery, injury and other medical conditions.

Pre-Surgery Exercise Program

You can improve your recovery by participating in the Transitions exercise program before surgery. This will strengthen your muscles and help you to learn the
exercises you will need to do for your recovery after surgery. Presurgery exercise can help to improve your health before and after surgery:

  • Strengthen muscles
  • Control or lose weight
  • Improve cardiovascular function
  • Improve daily function
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve range of motion, strength and ambulation
  • Reduce recovery time after surgery
  • Reduce risk of blood clots

Post-Rehab Exercise Program

You can enhance your recovery through our Post-Rehab Exercise Program, especially if you were not able to achieve all of your functional goals during therapy. Insurance and other financial concerns sometimes limit a patient’s ability to return to their desired level of function with skilled therapy. This
program will assist you to achieve this with the following benefits:

  • Continued supervised exercise progression
  • Improved cardiovascular fitness
  • Improvement of strength and balance for injury prevention
  • Promote return to work, leisure and sports
  • Cost-effective when insurance benefits limit therapy
