Rehabilitation Q&A

What is chiropractic rehabilitation?

Chiropractic rehabilitation provides a customized treatment plan that will help you regain movement, flexibility, and strength. Your treatment program will be designed to with your current physical limitation in mind. Your treatment can include techniques performed in-office as well as at-home plans.

Restoring you to your state of health and mobility prior to an injury or surgery is the purpose of chiropractic rehabilitation. It is important for you to regain your health without the long term use of medications. Rehabilitation may also prevent the need for invasive surgery.

What should I expect?

Initially, you will schedule a consultation to discuss your individual treatment goals and options. After assessing your symptoms and discussing your health history, including previous injuries and surgeries, there will be a treatment care plan put into place. This treatment care plan will be complete with attainable goals for you to meet.

There are different treatment options available which include:

  • Therapeutic exercises: For restoring strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility
  • Stretching techniques: Improves mobility, flexibility, and prevents scar tissue
  • Spinal adjustments: Correcting misalignments diminish the chance of a re-injury

All your rehabilitation treatment options will be designed to reduce pain, inflammation, stiffness while restoring your previous range of motion. Your home treatment plan may complement or mirror the treatment provided in the office.

Throughout this process, you will have evaluations to ensure your rehabilitation is moving in the right direction. If it is necessary refinements can be made to your treatment plan if it becomes too challenging. It can also be modified with more advanced techniques, or you can simply keep the course and reach your goal when it is appropriate for you.

How long is the rehabilitation process?

The length of the rehabilitation process can vary depending on your body’s ability to heal and your commitment to reaching your goals. Sometimes this commitment will include having patience with your body as it heals and not risking a new, or further injury by pushing too hard, too quickly. Dr. Barry and his team will supervise your progress, so your rehabilitation stays on course or returning you to your previous abilities, safely.
