After an illness, injury, or surgery, it’s not unusual to be less mobile than you once were. For some people, it takes months to get back to an active lifestyle, which can be frustrating if you enjoy being a very active person. Rehabilitation therapy can help you achieve your physical goals safely and effectively after an illness or injury.
At Integrative Medical Group of Texas in South Austin, we tailor a rehabilitation program to meet your individual needs. Whether you’re recovering from a sports injury, surgery, or a chronic health condition, we can help you improve your mobility and the quality of your life.
Improve your mobility and your outlook
Becoming less mobile than you once were is physically and emotionally frustrating because you may not be able to do things for yourself, such as getting dressed without assistance or walking down stairs. Having to depend on others to help you can lead to depression and emotional stress.
Rehabilitation therapy is a multifaceted program tailored to your needs so you can feel better physically and emotionally, giving you a more positive outlook on life.
It takes time to recover and regain strength, mobility, and dexterity. As you make progress physically, it can help you feel more positive and confident about your ability to get back to being active. The goals of rehabilitation are very personal, and our team is here to guide and support you along each step of your journey.
Strengthen your body to regain mobility
Our integrative rehabilitation specialists take a whole-person approach to helping you recover from an injury, illness, or chronic condition. That means prescribing physical exercises that work together to strengthen your whole body. When you improve function in certain muscle groups, you increase strength and endurance and improve your range of motion over time.
For example, after knee surgery, improving core strength and stability provides a solid foundation for better body balance. Better balance means you may be able to stand or walk without assistance as you recover from surgery and strengthen your knee. When your whole body functions optimally, you improve mobility and strength.
Stretch tight muscles for more joint flexibility
Stretching is a vital part of regaining a full range of motion in a joint. After injury or surgery, scar tissue forms on your soft tissue and causes it to contract. This makes it harder to move a particular joint through its full range of motion without pain or limitations.
Stretching exercises as part of your rehabilitation therapy keep the soft tissue and scar tissue limber so you can increase your mobility and reduce discomfort performing certain activities, like climbing stairs or reaching above your head.
Our rehabilitation specialists offer you the medical, physical, and emotional support you need to help you achieve your individual goals. We want to see you succeed and provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to do so. When you make the effort, you reap the benefits of a more mobile, active, independent lifestyle.
