Rehabilitation Q & A

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation helps alleviate pain, improves mobility, and restores optimal functioning when an injury, illness, disease, or surgery affects your strength, your mobility, and your ability to perform your usual activities.

The goals of rehabilitation are different for each patient, depending on the severity of their underlying condition. Some achieve complete recovery and return to the most competitive sports, while others focus on rebuilding basic skills so they can resume daily activities and live independently.

What conditions benefit from rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a key part of recovery for many problems that affect your back and nerves. A few of the health conditions Dr. Gehin often treats with rehabilitation include:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sports injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis
  • Lower back and neck pain
  • Whiplash

What types of therapies are used during rehabilitation?

Your rehabilitation program includes therapies designed to relieve pain by restoring blood flow and decreasing inflammation. As pain improves, your treatment can focus on improving mobility and flexibility, then rebuild your strength and endurance.

After performing a thorough evaluation and determining your rehabilitation goals, the team at CoreMedical can develop a customized treatment plan using a combination of therapies. These are just a few examples of the many rehabilitative therapies available:

  • Chiropractic care: spine and joint mobilization and myofascial trigger point therapy
  • Physical therapy: passive and active exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion
  • Therapeutic massage: increases circulation, reduces pain, and relaxes muscles
  • Ergonomic retraining: proper body mechanics and posture correction
  • Functional rehabilitation: retraining in the activities you want to perform
  • Balance and proprioceptive training: restores balance in weak and injured muscles

Can you continue rehabilitation at home?

Your full recovery depends on continuing to build strength and mobility at home. The team at CoreMedical can teach you specific exercises to include in your home regimen, focusing on safe body mechanics and recognizing when pain is a signal that it’s time to call Dr. Gehin.
