What should I expect during rehabilitation?
At Accelerated Medical, you begin with a thorough exam and consultation so your provider can assess your condition and needs. Then, they create your personalized rehabilitation program, carefully selecting exercises and therapies to treat your condition.
During sessions, you and your provider work toward restoring your body function so you can get back to your regular activities. You might work on exercises to strengthen the muscles around a weak or injured joint like your knee. Or, if you’ve recently had surgery, they might provide gentle manual manipulations and massage to keep your muscles supple and flexible while you recover.
As you move toward recovery, your provider adjusts your rehabilitation program to keep up with your needs and continue your progress. For example, you might move on from gentle passive exercises to active movements like strength building and exercises to restore your balance and coordination.
What are the benefits of rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation restores and enhances your musculoskeletal health, helping you recover from injuries and degenerative conditions. In some cases, you even reduce your risk of future injury by eliminating muscle imbalances that can impair your flexibility and range of motion.
Accelerated Medical often combines rehabilitation with other therapies like chiropractic care, custom orthotics, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle advice to enhance your overall health while also helping you progress toward recovery.
