Rehab from an injury doesn’t have to be complicated. It should be focused, simple to perform without elaborate equipment, and you should feel better every time you do them. The goal is to get you moving as normally and optimally as possible. And most importantly, moving pain free. Your rehab exercise program will be unique to you and your goals.
All exercises will be performed in-office so that you will have a good understanding of what to do. You will not just simply be given an exercise sheet and told do the best you can... You be given specific instructions with a follow-up email so there are no misunderstandings about what you are supposed to do.
There is no way around this one, there will be exercises and you will have to do them. You will be performing some type exercises in our office on most visits, but the bulk of the work will be performed by you at home. This will save you time and healthcare dollars.
Why is rehab needed?
Simple… Your body will follow the path of least resistance. If things hurt, you will move less as a defense mechanism. We call it pain avoidance behavior. This sets the stage for a faulty movement pattern, scar tissue development, and muscle weakness and imbalance.
