After you have experienced a traumatic injury or illness, you may not feel like yourself, your body may respond differently or move differently. This can be an unsettling experience. You may find yourself asking if you will ever recover. Rehabilitation therapy can help you regain your range of motion, movement, and strength while you heal.
If you are struggling with limited mobility due to a sprain, muscle strain, or dislocated joint, rehabilitation therapy can also help you get back to functioning independently again.
Doctors who are specifically trained in how to treat musculoskeletal problems dealing with the spine, nerves, and discs, know how the body is supposed to move and how to identify what is keeping it from functioning properly. This knowledge allows them to help patients recover from a wide variety of injuries and focus on prevention and rehabilitation to lessen the pain associated with conditions like:
- Post-surgery recovery
- Sports-related injuries involving ligaments, joints, muscles, and bones
