Rehabilitation Q&A

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is the process of recovering from an injury, surgery, illness, or some other event that hinders your movement and function. In general, rehabilitation focuses on three main areas: 

Orthopedic rehab

Orthopedic rehab covers musculoskeletal issues such as sports injuries, along with chronic conditions like arthritis. It helps with pain management and improves daily function.

Surgical rehab

Surgical rehab helps you to bounce back after surgery. It’s very common to experience impaired strength, flexibility, and mobility after surgery. Rehabilitation guides you back to full function.

Concussion rehab

Concussions can affect many aspects of your ability to function, including your balance and ability to tolerate busy or loud environments. Many people with concussions also experience headaches or other types of pain. Rehab helps to minimize troublesome issues and improve your function as you heal.

Rehabilitation isn’t limited to problems, either. It can help you get ready for an event or situation that impacts your function.

For example, if you’re planning joint replacement surgery, your doctor may recommend “prehab” — rehabilitation that you start ahead of the surgery. With this type of early preparation, you’re stronger and more flexible going into the surgery. This ultimately improves your outcome and helps you recover more quickly after the surgery. 

What symptoms does rehabilitation help with?

Rehabilitation treats a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Neck, shoulder, hip, knee, back, and foot pain
  • Stumbling and falls
  • Poor flexibility
  • Numbness
