Rehabilitation Q&A

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation includes customized passive and active treatments to help you recover from traumatic injuries such as muscle and joint sprains or after surgery and other medical procedures.

At Unbroken Body Chiropractic, Dr. Adams uses rehabilitation techniques to restore your physical abilities. The treatments support your healing process and enable you to rebuild your strength, flexibility, and stamina. 

Why would I need rehabilitation?

Unbroken Body Chiropractic provides rehabilitation to patients with a wide variety of injuries and needs:

Auto accident injuries 

Automobile collisions can cause potentially painful and debilitating injuries to your spine, muscles, connective tissue, and joints. Dr. Adams offers rehabilitation to protect your strength and flexibility while you recover.

Sports injuries

Participating in sports is an excellent way to stay healthy and fit, but it increases your risk of acute and chronic injuries. Dr. Adams uses rehabilitation techniques to help you recover from sports injuries. 

Surgery recovery

If you had surgery to repair a traumatic injury, like an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear or a chronic condition like arthritis, you might benefit from post-surgery rehabilitation. A customized program can help you maintain strength and flexibility while you recover and then progress to rebuilding your physical abilities as your body heals. 

What should I expect during rehabilitation?

At Unbroken Body Chiropractic, Dr. Adams begins with a comprehensive exam to evaluate your injury and physical limitations. He carefully assesses your strength, flexibility, and range of motion before creating a customized, progressive rehabilitation program. 

During your appointments, Dr. Adams provides manual therapies, including passive movements and stretches, supervised exercises, and soft tissue manipulation. Your physical rehabilitation may also include:

Massage Therapy

Massage encompasses a variety of techniques by which your provider kneads or manipulates your muscles to stimulate blood flow and reduce tension.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Dr. Adams provides personalized chiropractic adjustments to correct alignment issues in your spine. He can adjust your neck to release tension and relieve your headaches. 

Myofascial Release Techniques

Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that uses pressure to release tightness in your fascia. The treatment can relieve tension that contributes to your headaches.

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a tight area within your muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of your body as well. Via compression and sustained pressure, the treamtent can release and provide comfort to those contricted areas.

Active Release Techniques® (ART)

ART combines manipulation and movement to release tension, break up scar tissue, and increase circulation to relieve the underlying problem causing your headaches. 

Rapid Release™ Therapy

Rapid Release Therapy uses vibrations to relieve muscle tension, break up scar tissue, and improve circulation. 

Dr. Adams carefully customizes treatment programs to address the individual needs of each patient. 

How long does rehabilitation last?

Dr. Adams aims to treat most injuries and conditions within three to six appointments, although treatment duration varies between patients. In addition to providing expert rehabilitation care during your sessions, he teaches you exercises and stretches to practice at home. 

His goal is to help you learn to take care of your body with at-home care, reducing your reliance on health care providers to lead a pain-free active life.
