Rehabilitation Q & A

Enhanced Medical Centers

What is injury rehabilitation?

Injury rehabilitation is a non-surgical approach to healing the body and reducing the risk of relapse or re-injury. Appropriate for a broad range of injuries, rehabilitation helps alleviate:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Whiplash

Rehabilitation focuses on getting the body aligned and adjusted, and learning how to move in the right ways with the right intensity to strengthen and heal your injury.

What can you expect during a rehabilitation appointment?

During a rehabilitation appointment at Enhanced Medical Centers, you can expect to discuss your current issues, including your pain's location and intensity. Your integrative medicine specialist may examine your body and spine, as well as your strength, reflexes, and range of motion.

After that, the doctor may manipulate your spine or hips with hands, instruments, or both. Depending on your needs, they may also use:

  • Spinal decompression
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Cold laser therapy

During these manipulations and adjustments, the specialist may counsel you on what you can do at home to improve your condition. Most rehabilitation appointments last 15-30 minutes.

Depending on your injury, your doctor at Enhanced Medical Centers may recommend an amniotic allography to promote healing and shorten your recovery time. Creating a synergistic combination of stem cells, growth factors, and fibroblasts, this treatment is made from placental tissue donated during scheduled cesarean sections by healthy mothers who underwent detailed risk assessment. It is safe, ethical, and effective.

What can be done at home to improve injury rehabilitation?

When you see an integrative medicine specialist for rehabilitation, they may prescribe exercises to do at home. These exercises are designed to support the adjustments made in the office, as well as strengthen and stabilize the area. Depending on your injuries, your doctor may prescribe:

  • Foam rolling
  • Stretching
  • Strengthening movements
  • Joint mobility exercises

Your team member at Enhanced Medical Centers may counsel you on lifestyle habits that can improve mobility and reduce the risk of re-injury. This can include things like diet and exercise, as well as quitting smoking.

They may also review the proper way to lift heavy objects or recommend wearing a supportive device. Ergonomic workplace changes also may improve your condition, including the use of standing tables and chairs with posture support.
