Sometimes an injury or illness results in long-term disability that requires an ongoing program of care to help return the individual to sufficient function for everyday life. Physical rehabilitation is a focused effort to identify problems with movement and function to overcome any disabilities. St. Petersburg Chiropractic and Injury Rehab can provide an individualized plan of exercise suited to your needs.
Understanding Physical Rehabilitation
The concept of “rehabilitation” involves the identification of physical disabilities that create obstacles to the enjoyment of normal living and attempts to find effective ways to minimize the impact of limitations. Therapy may involve exercises that promote strength and better function, helping with the use of assistive devices or effective management of prosthetics. When these issues are properly addressed, it can make a significant difference in patients’ ability to manage everyday activities, as well as their quality of life.
Elements of Physical Rehabilitation
Physical rehabilitation may consist of a wide range of therapies to help individuals function in normal life. It may include education about the condition, exercises, modifications to the patient’s environment, support, counseling and providing and training in the use of assistive devices.
When carefully applied, these measures can help to reduce dysfunction, slow the progress of disabling conditions, compensate for lost function and maintain current levels of function. Physical rehabilitation is often needed after auto accidents or personal injury incidents to help restore function after serious injuries.
