Q & A

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation, also called functional rehabilitation, refers to exercises and stretches you perform throughout the recovery process after an injury. The main objective of functional rehabilitation is to get you back to daily activities or sports that were inhibited by an injury or painful condition. 


Your chiropractor at Spinal Correction Centers works closely with you after an initial consultation visit. During the consultation, they evaluate your injury or condition and its impact on your strength and mobility. 


They may use advanced diagnostic imaging tests to see the structures inside your body, like your spine and joints. 


Each rehabilitation plan is carefully curated to address your personal needs and help you work toward specific goals you set during your consultation. 

Who can benefit from rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation can benefit you if you’ve suffered a sports injury, car accident injury, or any other musculoskeletal damage that causes pain and affects your mobility. 


There are many ways that an injury can affect your day-to-day function. The ultimate goal of functional rehabilitation is full healing with a return to your original level of strength and activity. 


You might benefit from rehabilitation at Spinal Correction Centers for:


  • Sprains and strains
  • Dislocations
  • Herniated discs
  • Arthritis 
  • Spinal misalignment


Your chiropractor explains your diagnosis and gives you a realistic idea of what to expect from chiropractic rehabilitation. 

What should I expect during rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation involves lots of work on your part, along with guidance and support from your chiropractor at Spinal Correction Centers. 


While much of your rehabilitation takes place in the office, your chiropractor also teaches you strategies to use at home for continued improvement in function, strength, and mobility. 


A well-rounded functional rehabilitation plan includes:


  • Chiropractic structural correction
  • Muscle relaxation exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Stretching


All of the movements you learn in your rehabilitation plan are three-dimensional and prepare your entire body, not just a single injured part, to return to full function. 


Depending on your goals, you can work your way toward better body mechanics in day-to-day life or get back to a particular sport or exercise routine.
