Goals Of A Rehabilitation Program
Improves Mobility: Whether you are suffering from an orthopedic condition of the knee, hip,
shoulder, spine or neck, rehabilitation programs can help improve the
quality of your life. Some of these conditions also cause impairing of
the normal functioning of the joint. Rehab services aim at improving the
joint strength and stability to the patient.
Shortens Recovery Period: Patients who have undergone a joint replacement or reconstruction surgery
are also recommended to undergo rehab by the orthopedic doctors. It helps
to shorten the recovery period and reduce post-operative pain. Injuries
to a joint, ligament or tissue can also cause stiffness and immobility
in the body. The exercises prescribed in the rehabilitation program help
to regain flexibility of the affected area.
Prevents Injuries: Rehab programs aims at improving body balance with the help of exercises
that strengthen the ankle, hip and knee muscles. Also, strengthening of
the core muscles and improvement in posture helps to prevent injuries
to the joints.
A typical rehabilitation session includes stretching, strength building
and range of motion exercises, endurance training, balance training and
functional mobility training. It is a non-invasive form of treatment and
is usually not painful. However, the patient might experience a little
pain initially due to the stiffness in joints but it gradually decreases
as the rehab program progresses. Rehabilitation not only helps in recovering
from an orthopedic condition but also helps to improve overall fitness levels.
