Also known as physiotherapy or physical therapy, rehabilitation is the practice of strengthening and stretching muscles and connective tissue to promote healing after an injury. Rehabilitation can also include treatments that increase circulation, stimulate tissue regrowth, and relax muscles. The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to restore function and relieve pain completely.
Rehabilitation therapy offers many benefits. It can help:
- Improve strength
- Increase flexibility
- Reduce inflammation
- Promote tissue repair
- Reduce scar tissue
- Restore range of motion
- Decrease pain
In many cases, rehabilitation therapy can lead to a full recovery after an injury.
Rehabilitation therapy can help patients recover from injuries, but it can also help relieve chronic pain and symptoms caused by illnesses, postural misalignment, and genetic conditions. Some common conditions that the team at Beeson Wellness Center can treat include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Degenerative disc disease
Physical therapy is also very effective at treating repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow.
The expert providers at Beeson Wellness Center utilize rehabilitation as part of a comprehensive treatment plan designed to relieve pain, restore function, and promote overall health and wellness. Your treatment plan may include the following:
- Strengthening exercises
- Balancing exercises
- Massage therapy
- Myofascial release
- Heat and ice therapy
- Manual or assisted tractioning
Your provider might recommend you get physical therapy 2-3 times a week depending on your condition. Your provider might also recommend physiotherapy immediately following your chiropractic adjustments, as this can help your muscles maintain the correct position of your spine.
Your physiotherapy will be performed by a physical therapist who will guide you through a series of exercises, stretches, and other rehabilitation treatments during your session. A physical therapist is a licensed professional with extensive training in the science of exercise and the role it can play to support recovery.
If your plan includes massage therapy or myofascial release, you may see one of the licensed massage therapists at Beeson Wellness Center.
