Rehabilitation Q & A

What types of rehabilitation are available?

At Restorative Spine & Joint, the team offers a wide range of rehab services to help you get out of pain and improve your physical function. Popular types of rehab include:

  • Strength training
  • Stretches
  • Bodyweight exercises
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Unloading braces
  • Ice and heat

Certain conditions respond better to certain types of rehab than others. The team helps you understand which types of rehab are most beneficial based on your diagnosis and current level of function. They utilize rehab to resolve the underlying cause of your discomfort, prevent re-injury, and improve your overall strength and flexibility.

What conditions benefit from rehab?

The team offers rehab services to all patients to help reduce pain and prevent re-injury. Common conditions that benefit from rehab include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sciatica
  • Tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains

Most rehab programs begin with gentle exercises and stretches — in addition to pain-relieving treatments like ice, heat, and electrical stimulation — to reduce your pain and any associated inflammation or swelling in the injured area. Once you’re feeling better, the team incorporates more advanced exercises to help you regain strength and stability for better long-term function.

Do I need rehab?

To determine if you can benefit from rehab, the team begins with a consultation and physical exam. They discuss any symptoms or conditions you’re dealing with and ask about your overall health and fitness goals to develop an appropriate rehab program for you.

Even if you’re not injured, the team can develop a sports-specific program to help you recover faster after exercise or athletic events, prevent injuries, and improve your overall strength, flexibility, and stamina.

What happens during a rehab visit?

For your rehab visit, the team recommends wearing athletic clothing and bringing a towel and water bottle with you. Your session begins with a warm-up and any pain-relieving treatments that are recommended. Once you’re warmed up, the team takes you through a series of exercises and stretches to address your condition or fitness goals.

Afterwards, you cool down with gentle stretches and light cardiovascular exercises. The entire session lasts about one hour. The team may provide exercises you can do at home to maintain or even speed up your progress.
