Rehab or physical rehab is another name for physical therapy. The goal is to improve mobility and reduce pain for patients in a variety of situations. The therapists at Move Well MD are specialists in movement who use a combination of therapeutic exercises and hands-on care. Rehab stimulates the body's natural healing process while working to reduce pain and prevent further injury.
The main goal is pain relief but patients may experience some sore muscles getting there. Part of the role the therapist and Dr. Gruen play in rehab is to use modalities that reduce inflammation and relieve the pain that comes with physical exercise. Rehab will include treatments such as:
These all work together to strengthen the muscles and joints trying to become functional once again.
This is a course of treatment that helps patients come back from something. In other words, an athlete that gets injured during a game would go through rehab to get back on the field. Some other common problems that require rehab at Move Well MD include:
There are no set rules when it comes to this therapeutic service. Practitioners like Dr. Gruen may evaluate a patient and decide that rehab is the best option to improve their flexibility and reduce their pain.
Move Well MD provides a tailored plan for each patient that usually includes exercise-based therapy combined with other techniques to stimulating healing, strengthen problem areas and improve range of motion.
The therapist conducts a thorough evaluation during the first session in order to design a comprehensive care plan that helps reduce inflammation, build strength and increase flexibility. Home care is a big part of most rehab strategies, so the therapist provides patient education, as well. Exercises during the day can prevent further injury while improving healing at the same time. It's that combination of treatments modalities that makes rehab such an effective medical option.
