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 health and recovery by participating in the Transitions exercise program before surgery. The program can help you strengthen muscles, control weight, improve cardiovascular function, reduce pain, improve range of motion, strength and ambulation, reduce risk of blood clots and reduce recovery time after surgery.

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. This program will help with continued supervised exercise progression, improved cardiovascular fitness, strength and balance, and is cost-effective when insurance benefits limit therapy.
