Rehabilitation Q & A
What is rehabilitation?
The primary goal of rehabilitation is to help restore lost function due to an injury, illness, disease, or surgery. While many patients strive to recover the same level of strength, flexibility, and movement they enjoyed before their musculoskeletal problem, others use rehabilitation to restore the basic skills needed to live an independent life.
What conditions benefit from musculoskeletal rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation is a vital part of recovery for many musculoskeletal injuries; the following are a few examples.
- Tendon tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Degenerative disc disease
- Anterior cruciate ligament injury
- Whiplash, falls, and other accidental injuries
Virtually every type of musculoskeletal injury or degenerative disease can benefit from rehabilitation because passive and active movement is the best way to boost blood flow, decrease inflammation, rebuild strength, and restore your range of motion. The earlier you start rehabilitation, the faster you’ll recover and get back to your normal activities.
What treatments does rehabilitation employ?
Your rehabilitation program begins with gentle exercises and therapy to relieve your pain and reduce inflammation. As you’re able to withstand more intensive activity, you’ll work on mobility and rebuilding strength.
Bryant Wellness Institute develops your program by choosing the exercises and multimodal techniques that are best suited for your physical needs. Your individual plan may include one or more therapies, such as:
- Joint mobilization
- Myofascial release therapy
- Therapeutic massage
- Functional rehabilitation
- Balance and proprioceptive training
- Electrical stimulation
- Therapeutic exercises
As you rehabilitate the injured area of your body, your Bryant Wellness Institute provider also incorporates therapies needed to maintain balance with other bones and soft tissues that are compensating for the injured area.
Your rehabilitation may include training to prevent reinjury, ergonomic and posture assessments, balance and gait training, and sport-specific exercises for patients who want to return to athletic activities.
As experts in functional medicine, the team at Bryant Wellness Institute also evaluates concerns such as your nutritional needs, sleep patterns, and overall stress levels. Problems in any of these areas interfere with healing. Defined steps to deal with your lifestyle challenges are an integral part of your recovery.
