Have you recently undergone a surgical procedure and are left with lingering pain and discomfort? Did you injure your back in a car accident and still suffer muscle spasms? Or have you suffered an injury playing sport or working out? If you are in pain because of an injury, accident, illness or surgical procedure, have you tried rehabilitation therapy? The speed with which you recover and how well you rehabilitate following an injury depends on how you treat your injury. Rehabilitation therapy assists you with a healthy recovery. Here’s why this form of therapy is beneficial to many people:

Rehabilitation Therapy Advantages and Benefits

  1. Pain reduction: Rehabilitation therapy is an effective way to lessen pain and help you become more active, without discomfort.
  2. Reduction in swelling and inflammation: Joints become inflamed and swollen following an injury; rehabilitation therapy helps reduce these symptoms through safe and controlled movements.
  3. Fewer muscle spasms.
  4. Freer movements: An injury may restrict your movements and range of motion. A controlled program of physical rehabilitation helps to restore this lost range.
  5. Stronger muscles: Building strength in damaged muscles is important for mobility and also to prevent injuries occurring in the future.
  6. Improved flexibility: Rehabilitation helps to loosen tight muscles for greater flexibility and less pain.
  7. Better coordination and balance: Therapy helps you to learn how to control your muscles once more and enjoy freedom of movement.
  8. Increased endurance levels: At the start of a physical therapy program you may not be able to do much and this is normal. But as the program goes on, you will find the movements become easier and it is simpler to complete the exercises – your endurance improves.
  9. Reduced risk of problems with the limbs including deformities.
  10. Improved posture: Rehabilitation therapy helps correct any problems you experience with your posture following an injury – postural issues can cause back pain and other health problems.
  11. Increased self-confidence and self-esteem: Effective therapy helps reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety following an accident or illness.
  12. Greater independence: When you can move more easily, without pain, you can get around on your own and won’t have to rely on others for physical support. The faster you recover from your injury, the quicker you can enjoy being able to do things for yourself once more.
