At Florence Rehabilitation Center, we provide our patients with comprehensive rehabilitation. If you are new to the world of physical therapy and rehabilitation, you’re probably wondering what that means exactly. The short answer is that we treat patients with conditions or injuries affecting the bones, joints, muscles, and nervous system. Our experienced physical therapists specialize in recovery for everything from broken bones to arthritis and spinal cord injuries.
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a comprehensive treatment program that helps people recover from injuries or disabilities related to the musculoskeletal system. This means that if you have injured a muscle or bone, ortho physical therapy focuses on healing those injuries. If your injury or disability is permanent, then your ortho physical therapy will focus largely on teaching methods of minimizing further damage, reducing pain, and managing symptoms with a sustainable life-long approach. Ultimately, this kind of intervention can help you reach your recovery goals efficiently and safely.
How does rehabilitation therapy work? It’s different for everyone but most often, it combines physical therapies with psychological support and education to help you regain or improve movement, reduce pain, and restore function. Your physical therapy sessions for orthopedic rehab will include a variety of treatments and methods, including strength building, range-of-motion exercises, manual therapy techniques, and physical activities that aim to improve your balance and walking patterns. Strengthening muscles and bones while increasing flexibility has been found to reduce pain and soreness associated with any joint problems or fractures. Throughout the process, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals will gauge your progress through regular evaluations of your function.
What are the goals of orthopedic rehabilitation? The goal is to restore you to your pre-injury status as fully as possible, or for long term ailments, to help you gain as much mobility and independence in daily tasks as possible. This is accomplished through specialized training to teach you ways of preventing further injury while promoting healthy lifestyle changes and building strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance.
