Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury. This involves restoring strength, flexibility and endurance and is achieved through various exercises and drills. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked.
The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of your life. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries.
At Allied Healthcare, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the abnormal movement patterns and weaknesses in their body which may cause re-injury or may even be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. Most people understand that muscles can become tight, resulting in loss of motion, flexibility, and increased pain. However, most people do not realize that the nerves running throughout the body become tight and lose their mobility. These symptoms typically are felt as a burning pain in the neck, back or extremities. Treatment of tight nerves is very different then treating tight muscles as overstretching nerve structures can lead to further injury and worsening symptoms. Here at Allied Healthcare we provide a skilled systematic assessment to determine the true cause of a problem and design a specific treatment to reduce the symptoms.
