The Importance Of Physical Therapy And Rehabilitation

Posted on

Whether a surgical or non-surgical solution is the correct treatment choice, rehab therapy is an integral part of the recovery process. Rehabilitation is more than applying a brace or a specific technique. It is a comprehensive program designed not only to eliminate the deficits of an injury or musculoskeletal problem, but to prevent it from returning. Rehabilitate means to restore customary activity through education and therapy. Naturally, the kind of rehabilitation needed depends on the severity of each patient’s injury. What doesn’t vary is the need for focused, specialized, comprehensive care whether a patient is being treated for a one time problem or for a long term condition. Before beginning your therapy you will first need:

  • A complete and thorough evaluation
  • A personalized rehabilitation plan
  • A therapist present throughout each therapy session which ensures proper technique, immediate feedback, program progression and constant reassessment.
  • Education about the injury, including why and how specific exercises are prescribed, and providing tips on injury prevention, posture, body mechanics, ergonomics, and joint conversation.

After you finish with treatment with a therapist outpatient rehabilitation services may still be required. Having the proper equipment to complete your recovery is vitally important. This is why we offer the best equipment on the market. You can either rent or buy depending on your specific needs and length of time you will be using the machines. Put your rehab first with the tools you will need for success. Get back to your pre-injury self and back to a great quality of life.
