Rehabilitation is a service designed for patients who are trying to recover from an injury. It involves medical massage, physical therapy, and other modalities that support the healing process.
Physical therapy is a treatment option that involves targeted exercises that promote healing, enhance mobility, and build strength in an injured or weak area of the body. Physical therapy offers several benefits to injured patients, including:
The purpose of medical massage is to relieve pain in the injured area by loosening stiff, tense muscles and helping you relax. Medical massage can also promote healing by improving blood flow to the injury.
Rehabilitation may be beneficial to any patient who has been injured. If you’ve been injured in a sports accident, a car crash, or any other type of incident, you may be a good candidate for rehabilitation. Dr. Osborne can tell you whether rehabilitation is a good choice for you after reviewing your medical history and performing a thorough physical exam.
Every patient is unique, and the length of time it takes to heal from an injury will vary considerably. The length of your rehabilitation period will depend on the nature of your injury, your current physical condition, and other factors.
During rehabilitation, you can make sure that you’re healing as fast as possible by attending all treatment sessions and following all of Dr. Osborne’s instructions. You should also perform all of your recommended exercises at home as directed. If Dr. Osborne has given you activity restrictions, make sure you adhere to them at all times to avoid additional injuries.
