The Benefits of Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a form of therapy that treats a wide variety of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. It includes physical therapy rehabilitation, pain management, pre- and post-surgical care, and more.
Innovative Pain and Wellness offers rehabilitation, wellness, and prevention programs that help patients resume an independent, healthy lifestyle. Patients with musculoskeletal pain can experience significant improvement through physical therapy.
Benefits of Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Maximize Your Movement – Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence. Physical therapists are movement experts who can identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems.
Participate in Your Recovery – Physical therapists work collaboratively with their patients. We design treatment plans for each person’s individual goals, challenges, and needs.
Avoid Opioids – Opioid risks include depression, overdose, and addiction, plus withdrawal symptoms when stopping use. In some situations, dosed appropriately, prescription opioids are an appropriate part of medical treatment. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging health care providers to reduce the use of opioids in favor of safe alternatives like physical therapy for most long-term pain.
Avoid Surgery – Before you undergo expensive or invasive surgery, try physical therapy. For some conditions, including meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disk disease, treatment by a physical therapist has been found to be as effective as surgery.
“At Innovative Pain and Wellness, Orthopedic Rehabilitation is just one of the tools available to help you get back to a healthy and active lifestyle.”
What is a Physical Therapist
Physical therapists are movement experts who treat people of all ages and abilities, helping them improve and maintain function and quality of life. Physical therapists create individual treatment plans to match each person’s goals, helping people improve their fitness and function, avoid surgery, reduce the use of opioids and other drugs, and partner in their care.
Physical therapists diagnose and treat existing health conditions. They also provide patient education, customize plans of care, and preventative treatments that can help people avoid many health problems before they occur.
Our Physical Therapists combine extensive education, clinical experience, and the latest research to create treatment plans tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Pre- and Post- Surgical Care
Pre-Surgery Diagnosis – Your Innovative Pain and Wellness physician may recommend orthopedic rehabilitation as a diagnostic tool to help determine if you would benefit from surgery. Many injuries, while painful, may not require surgery at all.
Post-Surgical Care – Orthopedic rehabilitation is very important after surgery. Depending on the type of surgery performed, physical therapy is used to help you improve mobility, restore function, and increase strength.
If you don’t receive physical therapy after surgery, your injury or condition may take longer to heal, or it may even return because of not receiving the right kind of post-operative therapy.
