Orthopedic Specialists for Injury and Recovery
If you have sustained an injury or had surgery, orthopedic rehabilitation might be for you. Orthopedics can improve the overall quality of your life by increasing your mobility and strength and decreasing your pain.
When you enter into this type of program, you will work with an orthopedic specialist in your area who understands the type of injury or surgery you had and the pain you are experiencing because of it. You will get a customized program fitted to your life to best reach the results you desire.
One of the biggest reasons people look to orthopedics for rehabilitation is because of pain. There are a number of different techniques that can be utilized to relieve your pain.
- Manual Therapy – The therapist could use hands-on manipulations to help you mobilize your muscles and joints.
- Ultrasound – High-frequency sound waves are put into play to stimulate the deep tissues and increase your blood flow in the treated area.
- Stretching – These exercises can improve flexibility and strength while increasing blood flow.
- Ice or Heat Therapy – Heat will relax sore muscles while ice will reduce swelling and numb pain.
Orthopedic treatments serve a large variety of clients. They can include everything from physical therapy to something as small as shoe inserts. The options are nearly endless. In order to decide if you need orthopedics to help with your issue, read through the following common treatment services we offer at Multi-Care Medical.
You may think a fracture, sprain or strain will heal itself over time and that may be true, but you may not be able to return to your normal active lifestyle after the healing process is complete. When you break a bone, that area is often immobilized in a cast for weeks or months. That area can weaken and when the cast is removed, you might need rehabilitation in order to return to your regular activities.
Neck and Back Pain
Thousands of people suffer from neck and back pain and the issue can be very frustrating when you don’t know where the pain comes from or how to fix it. Orthopedics can help you pinpoint the problem so your neck and back pain can be stopped at the source.
If you are in an auto accident, you could face a number of different problems. Whiplash is the most common injury accident victims suffer, but there are a number of others such as headaches, back pain, muscle stiffness, blurred vision and more. Orthopedics treats soft tissue injuries as well as injuries to joints.
Pre- and Post-Surgery
You know surgery is a big deal, but you hope your issue will be fixed by the surgery itself. While surgery can help, you may also need further assistance to improve your healing time after the surgery. Some patients need to prepare for the surgery and others need rehabilitation afterward. Orthopedic rehabilitation can restore your mobility and strength to its full form.
If you are in chronic pain, you know how much it affects your daily life. Orthopedic professionals can help you live a more normal life with reduced pain. Each rehabilitation plan is customized so you get exactly what you need to deal with your personal pain.
