What is Rehabilitation Therapy?
Rehab therapy can help you get back, keep or improve abilities that may have been lost for a variety of reasons. Among the causes could be an injury, trauma, stroke, severe infection, major surgery, chronic conditions, genetic or birth disorders, a disease, developed disabilities due to chronic pain, or side effects of medical treatment.
The recovery process of any injury or surgery is not an easy one, even with a professional. Rehabilitation therapy is a tool you can use to help you ease that process and improve your quality of life post-injury. The ultimate goal depends on each case, the cause, and how severe the problem is, but in the end, it comes to regaining the independence lost and the restrictions on your abilities. To achieve this, it requires high-quality, personalized therapy.
Physical Rehabilitation Therapy
There are multiple types of rehabilitation therapy: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, cognitive rehabilitation, among others. The rehabilitation workforce is made up of a wide variety of healthcare professionals, from physical therapists and chiropractors to clinical psychologists and language therapists.
One of the most common therapies is physical therapy. Chiropractors and physiotherapists focus on the physical aspects of the recovery process. This type of therapy is used to improve the patients’ dysfunction via targeted workouts, massages, stretching exercises, and treatments. The specialist will work with the patients through different movements to restore the natural functionality of the body lost after the injury or illness. Physical therapy can help with multiple conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, joint replacement, sports injury, arthritis, knee pain, back pain, post-surgery, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and much more.
No matter how much of an active life you had, physical therapy will help you get back to your daily activities.
