19 Feb The Importance of Back Rehabilitation after Injury
Patients who suffer from back pain or injury can significantly accelerate their recovery by exercising frequently and receiving regular physical therapy and rehabilitation. Continued inactivity can increase back pain, stiffness, and weakness. Through controlled, gradual exercise, we can provide the best long-term solution to improve spinal health, decrease back pain, and prevent future episodes from occurring.
How Rehabilitation and Exercise Can Improve Back Pain
Without exercise and rehabilitation, swelling increases and discs become deteriorated. Our medical professionals at Sorrento Valley Pain Relief Center will work with you to establish short and long-term goals and focus on different areas of spinal recovery such as mobility, functionality, and education. We will demonstrate corrective exercises that you can complete at home throughout your treatment as well as after you have concluded treatment. The exercises help strengthen your muscles to keep your alignment in place and improve your posture. Our comprehensive and customized treatment plans often include:
- Helping the patient understand his or her injury
- Explaining the details regarding care
- Chiropractic care
- Physical therapy
- Massage therapy
- Physical medicine
In addition to the above treatment plans, we provide several supplementary pain management techniques to help discover the primary source of pain and decrease the pain. In some cases, physical therapy isn’t enough to relieve back pain. Through our interventional procedures, we can pinpoint and direct treatment to the source of pain. These procedures include injections that address a number of back pain disorders.
