Have you experienced one of the following?
- A traumatic car accident injury that is painful, or limits your ability to move
- Recent surgery that requires recovery
- Illness that has weakened a part of your body, such as your legs or arms
- Nerve damage, stroke, or other neurological problem
- Weight-related injury
If you need help getting your body back to what it used to be, then exercise rehabilitation can help you. Exercise rehab focuses on using a specialized exercise regimen to help your body regain flexibility, strength, function and stability. This is much different from a regular exercise regimen in that the goal is to heal tissue and return the patient to pre-injury condition. By using a personalized rehabilitation program, not only will it help you strengthen weakened areas, it will stimulate your body’s natural healing properties, speeding up the recovery process. In fact, our exercise rehabilitation programs align fibroblasts, which are cells that produce the collagen needed to fully repair any injury.
Our exercise rehabilitation experts begin the process by examining your specific medical needs and creating a personalized plan that guides you to recovery. Our rehab experts then take your individualized recovery plan, set up a rehab schedule with regular exercise goal checkpoints, and the work begins.
We will be with you every step of the way, guiding you, and monitoring your recovery success. Our experts can answer any questions that you may have, and if we see opportunities to improve your recovery plan, then we will discuss those opportunities with you. Over the course of the program, you will notice the return of flexibility, balance, coordination, endurance and strength to the affected area. Once the program is complete, you should always continue the exercise regimen at home to achieve continued stability.
Part of our exercise rehabilitation program includes Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), which is internationally recognized to treat muscle injuries. There are many benefits to EMS, including:
- Decreased pain
- Relaxation of muscle spasms
- Prevention of atrophy in the muscles (muscle wasting)
- Better local blood circulation
- Re-educating muscles
- Increase your overall range of motion
With a customized exercise rehabilitation plan and the addition of EMS, your injury or pain will be healed quickly and effectively.
Getting slowed down by injury, illness or surgery does not have to be permanent. With the exercise rehabilitation program at Discover Optimal Healthcare, your recovery is in good hands.
