Rehab or rehabilitation is a treatment program designed to help patients who have difficulty moving regain strength, flexibility, and a range of motion. Rehab is often used after an accident, sports injury, a chronic condition, or surgery to help the patient return to normal daily activities. The activities and exercises help to increase the patient’s mobility and also help to relieve pain and discomfort. Rehabilitation therapy also helps to improve a patient’s physical function. The goal is to make it easier for patients to complete necessary, everyday tasks and activities and get their life back. The practitioners at Arizona Pain Relief believe that the patient plays an integral role in recovery and rehabilitation and work diligently to educate their patients about how to treat and care for themselves at home.
There are several different methodologies used in rehab services. Chiropractic care can help to relieve pain and release any nerves that are causing immobility. Manual therapies, including massage, mobilization, and manipulation by a chiropractor, are manual therapy techniques that help to increase range of motion and reduce pain. It may also include exercises for the lower back, neck, knees, and shoulders designed to improve strength, coordination, flexibility, and endurance. They might include stretching, lifting weights, walking, and aerobics. Education about lifestyle changes to help a patient to change certain activities or postures can help to reduce discomfort and prevent reinjury, which is an important aspect of rehab. This could involve teaching a patient to use crutches and making the home safer for a person with balance or strength issues or instruction on taking more regular exercise at home to build strength and balance.
The highly trained clinicians at Arizona Pain Relief rehabilitate patients after an injury to reduce pain and regain a normal range of motion. Rehab also improves flexibility and strength after the injury or surgery. Chronic conditions are helped by rehab and chiropractic therapy as well. The providers will work with the patient to set up goals and work at them over time celebrating success and milestones on the route to recovery.
