Rehabilitation Q & A
What is rehabilitation?
Also known as physical medicine and physiatry, physical therapy rehabilitation is the area of healthcare that focuses on helping you restore your functional abilities to improve your quality of life. Depending on your rehab needs, your specific treatments may vary.
At Posture Perfect Wellness Center, the team breaks rehabilitation into several areas, including:
- Pain management
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Sports Medicine
All of the practice’s physical therapy treatments are centered on conservative, compassionate, and evidence-based care to improve your overall health and wellness.
What is physical therapy?
Several physical therapy treatments are available at Posture Perfect Wellness Center, depending on the type of function you need to restore. We may recommend:
- Gait training to improve mobility and decrease pain
- Specially-designed exercises to strengthen and retrain muscles
- Ultrasound treatments to relieve pain and break up scar tissue
- Traction to reduce pressure and increase comfort and movement
- Manual therapies such as spinal manipulation and massage to increase movement
- Electrical stimulation to reduce pain and inflammation and treat and retrain muscles
- Cold or heat to relieve pain, increase circulation, reduce spasms, and loosen muscles
Who needs rehabilitation or physical therapy?
Physical medicine and physical therapy can assist your recovery from illness; injury or trauma; or surgery. It’s also very helpful for people suffering from disabilities associated with the spinal cord; nerves; bones and joints; and soft tissues.
Rehabilitation not only rejuvenates your body by revitalizing and strengthening your ligaments, muscles, and joints. It can also:
- Restore your range of motion
- Increase your range of motion
- Alleviate pain and discomfort
- Reduce your dependency on pain relievers
Rehabilitation is also a valuable tool for managing chronic conditions like osteoporosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Osteoporosis is a disease that leads to brittle and weak bones. When using physical therapy in combination with exercise and weight-bearing techniques, your risk of falls decreases, bone density increases, and mobility improves.
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition that’s exacerbated by exercise yet doesn’t improve with rest. Managing CFS with physical therapy techniques such as ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) as well as laser and hot and cold therapies lessens your pain and improves your range of motion.
