Why Is Rehabilitation So Important After an Injury?

Whether you’ve had a sports injury, experienced an injury in an automobile accident, got hurt on the job, or just had a random mishap that caused harm to your body, you typically need medical care to get your body healed and back on track.

Our board-certified team of experts at University Pain Medicine Center provides comprehensive evaluations to determine the severity of your injury and can talk with you about your next steps to help eliminate your pain and start your proper healing process.

Why you should see your doctor after an injury

When you have an accident, you might think you can just wait it out and hope for the best. However, this decision can actually delay your healing process and even cause additional harm to your body.

When you visit us at University Pain Medicine Center, we provide a thorough exam that leads to an accurate diagnosis of your injury, which is followed up with a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, lifestyle, and goals. 

Understanding rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is a treatment that helps you overcome the results of an injury. The type of rehabilitation you receive is determined by the type of injury you have and the severity of it.

At our practice, we provide numerous procedures to help your body heal. The rehabilitation process focuses on pain management, strength, endurance, coordination, flexibility, and range of motion. The last step involves making sure you can complete certain tasks to perform at your peak function.

Benefits of rehabilitation

Rehabilitation helps repair your injury and gets you back to your full physical function and mobility before you got hurt. 

Benefits of rehabilitation include:

In addition, when you take the time to treat your injury with medical intervention and supervision, you can improve your physical fitness and lower your risk of injuries in the future. 

Rehabilitation can also help you emotionally. As you start to feel better, your mood improves. As your pain reduces, you can sleep better, affecting how you feel.

Once your body is healed, you begin to experience overall wellness, which gets you back to your normal daily routine and keeps you moving forward.

If you have an injury needing repair and healing, don’t hesitate to contact our team. We can give you an accurate diagnosis and get you on a treatment plan that will have you back in the game in no time.
