What is rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation or rehab is a program of exercise and therapy that, by design, restores strength, mobility, and skills lost after suffering an injury, illness, or disease. In some cases, patients also need rehabilitation following a planned surgical procedure.
The goal of rehabilitation depends on the severity of your underlying condition. The team at New Medical Center uses a range of therapies to restore optimal functioning, whether that means helping you perform routine daily activities or intensive rehab for competitive athletes who want to return to their sport.
What health conditions benefit from rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation can help you recover from virtually any problem affecting your musculoskeletal system, including neck and back injuries. These are a few conditions that improve with rehabilitation:
- Chronic Neck and low back pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Anterior cruciate ligament injury
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Traumatic injuries (sprains, strains, fractures)
- Joint injuries and dislocation
- Rotator cuff injuries and Shoulder pain
A well-structured rehabilitation program can promote quicker recovery for these and many other injuries.
What therapies does rehabilitation utilize?
Your provider at New Medical Center rehabilitates the injured area while also including therapies to support the adjacent joints and muscles. Taking a whole-body approach to your rehabilitation is essential because an injury in one area places extra stress on other muscles and bones.
Everyone on the team has extensive experience in many techniques, so your rehabilitation plan includes the therapies needed for your individual condition. Some of the therapies used include:
- Chiropractic techniques
- Physiotherapy modalities
- Therapeutic massage
- Structured exercise
- Ergonomic retraining
- Balance and proprioceptive training
- Regenerative medicine for pain management
Your rehabilitation program may also include nutrition counseling to support your recovery or a medical weight loss program if necessary. If you plan to return to sports, the team at New Medical Center includes sport-specific exercises and training in your rehabilitation.
Will I receive corrective exercises to do at home?
Your provider develops an individualized program of corrective exercises so you can continue your rehabilitation at home. Following your home regimen is essential for reaching your rehabilitation goals because your appointments at New Medical Center won’t achieve the same benefits as you can accomplish with regular exercise.
When you need to rehabilitate from an injury or improve flexibility, strength, and movement caused by chronic pain or degenerative disease, call New Medical Center or schedule an appointment online.
