: a good recovery should get beyond simply fixing one’s  injured body part but instead, acquiring a relearning of movements of the whole body in order to allow one to reach his/hers maximum potential of physical fitness, and therefore future injuries can be prevented - as we achieve a good grounding in the phrase of pre-habilitation.
