What Is Physical Rehabilitation Therapy?

Physical Rehabilitation Therapy is a specialized health care that’s focused on restoring the body with strength, flexibility, and mobility. Healing, repair, and recovery are the goal. Most often people get involved with these disciplines after a serious injury as a result of sports, outdoor activities, vehicular accidents, or surgery. Our rehabilitation treatments are a team effort, blending elements of chiropractic caremassage therapy, and physical rehab for maximized results.

What Health Conditions Does Rehabilitation Therapy Treat?

Physical therapy modalities and rehabilitation, whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis or as part of an assisted living program, can treat a huge list of medical issues. Basically, any condition which limits your ability to live your life the way you want or that disrupts it through pain and discomfort is likely a condition treatable with therapy. For our specific clinics, feel free to browse our Conditions page to get a better idea of where we focus our resources for Alaskans.

Is It Safe?

Yes, rehabilitation therapy is widely used and considered safe. That doesn’t mean someone won’t get sore or put additional strain on muscles and other tissues. A small percentage of the population of patients may experience uncomfortable side effects- typically short-term after visit soreness that will resolve in a day or two. It’s best to do your homework, get care from great providers, and ask as many questions as it takes until you either feel comfortable on your route to healing and recovery.

Is It Effective?

Consider sports therapy and rehabilitation, how many amateur and professional athletes successfully get back into the game? How many car accident victims or stroke victims with a disability get back to work? How many moms get back to playing with their children? No one can say anything is 100% effective, but there are millions upon millions of people who benefit from these therapies around the world every single day.

What Is a RehabilitationTherapist?

There is an assortment of definitions, but in a general sense, these specialists help people recover from or deal with a range of physical conditions through various forms of physical exercise. At Better Health Chiropractic, we incorporate elements of massage therapy and chiropractic care and collaborate with other providers if needed to design a truly personalized treatment plan.

How Do Rehabilitation Therapists Diagnose?

Through x-rays, very careful examinations and physical assessments, your past medical history, lifestyle information, and much more. It’s a complex subject. Have you ever asked a doctor how they diagnose things? Consider all the years of schooling and the ongoing training involved in these professions as a matter of law and practice. After 20 years in Alaska, well, we’ve seen pretty much everything. And when conditions are outside our scope, we help folks find the specialists and care they need to get better and even collaborate with these providers as a team.

What Is the Scope of a Rehabilitation Therapist’s Practice?

Better Health Chiropractic physical rehab therapists can help address your current issues and offer treatments for a large variety of conditions. They can provide prevention skills, insight, and recommendations on how to avoid workplace injuries and design overall injury-prevention programs for anyone from athletes to school teachers.

Physical Rehabilitation Therapy Frame of Reference

Physical rehabilitation therapy means working to regain physical abilities that may have been lost due to a fall, car wreck, sports injury or otherwise. Care may include help to adapt daily tasks during the healing process. Recommendations may also be made regarding long-term health and daily tasks related to the movement of any limbs affected by injury or other conditions. Goals include regaining independence, recovering the use of injured portions of the body, and improving physical skills that may have been lost or impaired.

Increased muscle strength

Increased flexibility

Reduced chance of re-injury

Pain relief

Slower development of arthritis

Better overall function
