Rehabilitation Q & A

What is physical therapy?

The rehabilitation specialists at the Medical Wellness Group believe that it takes a well-rounded team to get you back to your daily activities after you’ve suffered an injury or are recovering from a medical condition. That team may include:

  • Rehabilitation physicians
  • Therapists
  • Athletic trainers
  • Chiropractors
  • Strength and conditioning coaches

The overall goal of functional rehabilitation is to restore your strength and mobility. Medical Wellness Group uses three-dimensional movements — front to back, side to side, and top half/bottom half — to prepare your whole body to return to your daily routine. By strengthening weakened muscles progressively and smartly, the team re-educates your body while avoiding further injury along the way.

What forms of physical therapy are most effective?

At the Medical Wellness Group, the rehabilitation team uses several effective approaches, often in combination, that help you regain your strength, such as:

Laser therapy: Medical Wellness Group offers Diowave® laser therapy, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, to speed up your body’s natural healing response. The laser stimulates regeneration of your cells, while also reducing pain and swelling in the affected area.

Ultrasound: Ultrasound therapy works by sending sound waves that penetrate several inches into your tissue to break down scar tissue and reduce swelling and inflammation around injured areas.

Electrical muscle stimulation: Electrical muscle stimulation works to relax your muscles, increase your blood flow, and reduce your pain in the targeted areas.

Rapid release technique: Using specialized equipment, the physical therapy experts use an oscillating instrument to break down scar tissue and post-surgical adhesions to ensure proper healing.

Chiropractic care: Continued chiropractic care in conjunction with physical therapy increases your chances of a quick and successful healing process.

What physical therapy exercises can I do at home?

Under the guidance of a Medical Wellness Group rehab specialist, you receive exercises you can do at home that build on the foundation of your office visits to speed up your healing.

In short, when it comes to rehabbing an injury, the more you participate in the healing process, the better your outcome will be.
