Rehabilitation Q & A
What does rehabilitation involve?
Depending on the type of illness or injury you’re recovering from, rehabilitation may involve occupational therapy, physical therapy, social services, or counseling. Rehabilitation focuses on restoring function after a fracture, amputation, stroke, arthritis, or other serious condition. You take an active role in your own rehabilitation and recovery by working with your doctor to meet your individual goals.
Your goal may be a complete recovery with full, unrestricted movement, or you may want to become more independent in your daily activities. At Pro Rehab Chiropractic, your doctor works closely with you to help you achieve your goals by prescribing the appropriate exercises or therapies throughout the rehabilitation process.
What types of rehabilitation therapies are available?
The chiropractors at Pro Rehab Chiropractic are highly trained in a variety of rehabilitation techniques and the latest technologies to evaluate and assist your recovery. They create a customized treatment plan using different modalities, based on your own personal goals for recovery. Your rehabilitation plan may include:
- Gait training
- Therapeutic massage
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Joint mobilization and manipulation
- Electrical stimulation
- Compression therapy
- Isokinetic evaluation or exercises
- Medical consultation
- Posture and body mechanics correction
- Therapeutic exercises
- Dry hydrotherapy
Your chiropractor can help you recover after an injury or an unexpected accident or health condition so you can get back to living your life as fully as possible.
What results can I expect from physical rehabilitation therapies?
Your results depend on your participation in the prescribed therapies. Everyone recovers at their own pace, so try not to get discouraged if you’re not making progress as quickly as you had hoped. Rehabilitation takes time and effort, so if you stick with your prescribed treatment plan and do home exercises, if necessary, you’ll achieve your recovery goals.
Rehabilitation is harder than simply taking medication to reduce uncomfortable symptoms, but working through the pain or challenging yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally pays off in the long run.
