As the most logical first step after identifying and correcting the root cause of any pain, rehabilitation is an excellent way to promote active physical recovery from injury, illness, surgery, or some other limiting disability. The main goal of an effective rehab program is to help patients achieve the level of function and mobility that enables them to return to their normal activities. While rehabilitation aims to help patients recover completely, in some cases it may simply help patients successfully adjust to a new physical reality. The physicians and clinicians at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic take a whole-person approach to rehabilitation, using state-of-the-art technologies, physical therapy, medical massage, and other beneficial, natural methods to help patients reach their potential as quickly as possible.
Successful physical rehabilitation requires active patient participation, and that starts with movement, which is critical to injury recovery. That’s because movement helps decrease inflammation, which is your body’s natural response to injury. Although inflammation initially promotes healing, it can interfere with your muscles’ firing patterns and create instability when it’s allowed to persist. By increasing blood flow and decreasing inflammation, movement helps restore a wider range of motion, thereby giving your muscles what they require to restore normal function and regain strength. Early, precise movement that incorporates specific exercises and stretches is a big part of what makes rehabilitation therapy so effective at promoting recovery and minimizing long-term damage.
