Functional rehabilitation is a therapeutic treatment aimed at restoring healthy movement patterns and relieving pain after an injury. Perhaps you twisted an ankle while hiking or resurrected an old sports injury while exercising. Maybe you lost some range of motion due to an accident and have never fully recovered.
Regardless of the circumstances, if your body isn’t bouncing back the way it once could, you are not alone. While kids can often sleep off an injury and be good as new, adults’ bones are more brittle, and our muscles, tendons and ligaments have lost some elasticity and therefore may take longer to recover. Simply resting, icing and bracing will often not be enough to repair the damage. That is why rehabilitation is so important.
By undergoing rehabilitation therapy from Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, you can:
- Address the root cause of your pain
- Reactivate muscles that may have been inhibited by injury
- Stimulate the related nerve supply
- Restore the affected area to help avoid re-injury
- Regain full and active range of motion
- Retrain the body to use the correct muscle sequence
The good news is that pain does not have to be your new normal. Moreover, while we understand that shortcuts may be tempting, medication is not the only solution. In the world of rehabilitation physical therapy, drugs are a persuasive alternative, but seldom are they long-term solutions.
When prescriptions are the primary method of treatment, medication mismanagement becomes a risk. If you develop a dependency on painkillers, often the injury will still exist, but you no longer feel the body’s nerve endings signaling pain. This can exacerbate your condition and potentially lead to drug addiction. Given this possibility, there is no substitute for rehabilitation therapy. Through proper physical therapy and chiropractic care, you could finally find relief from chronic pain and injury-related mobility issues.
