Most of us know what rehabilitation is. It is care that can help you get back to normal or improve skills after a disease or injury.
Unfortunately, rehab only take place retroactively—after there is an issue.
Prehabilitation, however, focuses on health before there is a problem.
Loriana Hernandez-Aldama, an Emmy award-winning journalist, author, and cancer survivor, calls prehabilitation the mental and physical preparation a person can take to achieve good health, from stress reduction to healthier eating.
