Restoring full function after an injury involves more than just healing of tissues. In many cases, rehabilitative exercise is needed to strengthen muscles, tendons, and ligaments to restore strength and a full range of motion. At Accident & Injury Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA, we offer rehabilitative exercise to restore normal function after injuries.
What Is Rehabilitative Exercise?
Rehabilitation is a therapeutic strategy that focuses on restoring normal mobility after an injury. In some cases, the therapy may be used after a surgical procedure and may be used to reduce pain, improve strength and increase range of motion. Rehabilitative exercise can also be used to heal injuries and restore normal movement. The type of exercise depends on the injury, and may progressive in difficulty, to gradually improve function in the affected area.
Conditions That Might Require Rehabilitative Exercise
Rehabilitative exercise can be used to help a wide variety of conditions and injuries. Individuals with back problems can benefit from exercises that focus on core strengthening and flexibility. Those with shoulder, hip or leg injuries can benefit from muscle strengthening exercise that improves range of motion. Knee pain and injuries can benefit from graduated exercises that reduce discomfort and improve strength. Individuals who have medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia, benefit from improved muscle and nerve function, as well as more efficient movement.
What To Expect During Rehabilitative Exercise Sessions
Your Tacoma chiropractor will design a chiropractic care plan for your unique needs, based on your medical history and a careful evaluation of your current condition. Your plan may begin with stretching exercises that gently prepare your body for more rigorous activities.
