Timing and Importance of Injury Rehabilitation

Set Yourself Up for (Future) Success with Proper Injury Rehabilitation

Getting injured is more common than most people think. Whether it’s a sprain, broken bone or tendonitis, injuries usually happen at the most inconvenient times. However, the way you deal with an injury can affect how you function throughout the rest of your life. Learn about the importance of timely injury rehabilitation and how to heal your body faster, with fewer complications.

Importance of Injury Rehabilitation

The adult human body has more than 600 muscles and more than 200 bones. Whether we’d like to admit it or not, most of us are bound to experience an injury at some point in our lives.

And it’s not just athletes who get injured.

At work, overextension injuries are common. This includes injuries related to repetitive motions, pulling, holding, lifting, pushing, carrying and even throwing. And at home, falls top the list of the most common home injuries among children and adults. Without the proper injury rehabilitation, these injuries can result in lost time and lost mobility.

Timing of Injury Rehabilitation

Before starting an injury rehabilitation program, it’s important for patients to take the time to fully understand what phase of recovery they are in. This will ensure the introduction of the proper treatments and exercises at the right time.

At Twin Boro, we utilize a unique One2Four approach. Experienced physical therapists at each of our 23 locations create an individualized plan of care to guide the patient from the initial level of function (one or two) to a higher level of function (three or four). Moving gradually through the injury rehabilitation process is essential for full and speedy recovery.

For example, if certain stretches and exercises are used too early on in the rehabilitation process, this may further damage tissues, lead to inflammation and even make the injury worse.

Ultimately the injured area will need to be conditioned for the rigors of your particular activity or sport and in all planes of motion. Injury treatment can include hands-on manual therapy, joint mobilization and stretching, exercises, hot and cold treatment, ultrasound and/or electrical muscle stimulation.
