Orthopedic Rehabilitation Q & A

What is orthopedic rehabilitation?

Orthopedic rehabilitation is the treatment of issues with the musculoskeletal system including muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. These treatments help patients who have difficulty moving. The limited mobility can be the result of an accident, sports injury, a chronic condition, or a post-surgical occurrence. Patients usually have some weakness that can be improved with specific targeted workouts. The activities and exercises used can help to increase mobility and to relieve pain and discomfort. Rehabilitation therapy also helps to improve a patient’s physical function. The goal is to make it easier for a patient to complete necessary, everyday tasks and activities. The practitioners at In Touch NYC Physical Therapy believe that the patient plays an integral role in recovery and rehabilitation, and work diligently to educate their patients about how to treat and care for themselves at home.

What types of treatments are included in orthopedic rehabilitation?

There are a variety of options available for patients including:

  • Exercises designed to improve strength, coordination, flexibility, and endurance. They might include stretching, lifting weights, walking, and aerobics.
  • Manual therapy including massage, mobilization, and manipulation by a chiropractor are manual therapy techniques which help to increase the range of motion and reduce pain.
  • Education about lifestyle changes to help a patient to change certain activities or postures can help to reduce discomfort and prevent re-injury. This could involve crutches and make the home safer for a person with balance or strength issues or instruction on taking more regular exercise at home to build strength and balance.

How can orthopedic rehab help?

The highly trained providers at In Touch NYC Physical Therapy can rehabilitate patients after an injury to reduce pain and regain a normal range of motion. The rehab will also improve flexibility and strength after the injury. Chronic conditions are helped by rehab and chiropractic therapy as well. The providers will work with the patient to set up goals and work at them over time. These patients will often have to rebuild their strength or relearn how to complete some physical tasks and movements.
