What is physical rehabilitation?
Physical rehabilitation is an area of medicine focused on helping you maintain or restore activities of daily living. It includes a variety of therapies that improve muscle strength, flexibility, and balance so you can continue to engage in your daily routine without pain or risk of injury.
Physical rehabilitation also teaches you how to use devices that support the healing process or help you maintain your independence.
Who benefits from physical rehabilitation?
When you come in for a consultation at Next Level Medical Centers, the team works together to design a treatment plan that provides the best outcomes for your condition.
You may benefit from physical rehabilitation for:
- Supporting your recovery after a sports injury
- Alleviating your chronic pain condition
- Improving joint pain and flexibility
- Reducing your need for surgical intervention
The integrated team provides pre-surgery rehabilitation, called pre-hab, which improves overall health and conditioning for better post-surgical outcomes. Next Level Medical Centers offers physical rehabilitation for patients after they’ve undergone knee or hip replacement surgery to support healing and restore joint function.
The team also specializes in providing physical rehabilitation plans for patients looking for non-surgical or drug-free alternatives for their condition.
What can I expect from physical rehabilitation?
You can expect a comprehensive and individualized physical rehabilitation plan that addresses your physical needs and health conditions. The details of your plan depend on your diagnosis, medical and surgical history, and symptoms.
Your physical rehabilitation treatment plan may include:
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Home exercise program
- Regenerative medicine
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
How long does physical rehabilitation last?
The length of your physical rehabilitation program depends on many factors, including your initial diagnosis, overall health, and medical history. Initially, we may have you come to the office several times a week for therapy.
The team adjusts your treatment plan as your condition improves, but may recommend a home exercise program and periodic chiropractic care to maintain strength, flexibility, balance, and overall health.
