Phases of Rehabilitation
During your recovery from injury, you will go through four phases of rehabilitation. These Phases are:
- Acute Phase
- Rehabilitation Phase
- Strengthening Phase
- Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) Phase
Adjustments are by far the most important treatment you will receive. The doctor will analyze your spine and gently make adjustments to the areas needed to improve joint function and decrease nerve irritation.
After the doctor analyzes your spine, he will prescribe different stretches to help alleviate the initial tightness and pain you are experiencing following your crash.
Trigger point therapy takes on many different forms and our highly experienced licensed massage therapists will determine,depending on your individual case, what kind of therapy will help too.
Just like in the Acute Phase, adjustments are the most important part of your recovery to health. Continuing to get adjusted will improve your joint function and decrease the irritation to your nerves.
Your doctor will prescribe and teach you the specific strengthening regimen to stabilize your spine and decrease the pain and symptoms.
Final Corrective Adjustments
As in the Rehab and Acute Phases, adjustments are the most important part of your recovery to health. Continuing to get adjusted will improve your joint function and decrease the irritation in your nerves.
A More Aggressive Strengthening Regimen
Using the same targeted exercises in the Rehab Phase, you workout will now include more or heavier weights or longer times on the exercise devices that are available at the Specific Care Chiropractic Office.
