Rehabilitation is a customized program to restore strength, mobility, and vitality. Whether you are living with a chronic pain condition or recovering from injury or surgery, rehab could help you feel better faster. Learn the benefits here.

Maybe you suffered an injury. Maybe you are living with a chronic pain condition. Or maybe you are recovering from orthopedic surgery. Whatever the cause, is your daily life limited by pain and restricted mobility?

Rehab could help you live life with less pain. It is a personalized, structured program focused on rebuilding strength and restoring mobility so you can enjoy your favorite activities once again.

At R2 Wellness Centers we take a comprehensive approach to healing. Our rehab team guides people of all ages through rehabilitation to help them live better. And the best part is your rehabilitation program is customized for you.

The number of sessions you need and what you do during your sessions vary, but our goal is to improve your quality of life through recovery and pain management. Just a few benefits of rehab include:

Improved mobility

When you are injured or in pain, you might find that your mobility is not what it used to be. Joint instability and muscle weakness can make moving through daily tasks difficult, but one of the biggest benefits of participating in rehab is improved mobility.

Your rehab specialist helps you through targeted exercises to improve joint mobility and flexibility. Together, you work toward restoring a full range of motion so you can move confidently through life.

Increased strength

Injury and illness can weaken muscle groups throughout your body, which can contribute to decreased mobility and pain. Along with better mobility, rehabilitation builds strength in your body.

Increased muscle strength supports better mobility, and it makes performing daily tasks easier. It can also minimize pain and speed recovery.

Enhanced pain management

Exercise is a major part of rehabilitation, but our team addresses all aspects of recovery during your sessions. Whether you are recovering from an injury or you’re managing a chronic condition like arthritis, we help you find ways to manage pain.

Rehab can reduce pain by building strength and flexibility, and we can recommend lifestyle adjustments to further minimize pain. Many of our patients find that rehab helps them become less reliant on pain medication.

Faster recovery

Rehab is a key part of recovery from musculoskeletal injury and orthopedic surgery. Your body naturally has the power to heal itself, and rehabilitation taps into that ability to speed recovery. 

Participating in rehab after injury or surgery helps you regain strength and resume your normal activities. It can help you recover faster, while at the same time reducing your risk of complications like blood clots and even reinjury.

Reduces risk of blood clots

Blood clots are clumps of blood that have thickened into a gel-like substance. Because they are not liquid, they can get stuck in veins or travel to your heart, lungs, or brain and cause serious health complications. 

There are many possible causes of blood clots, but your risk increases if you are recovering from surgery, or you are inactive due to low mobility. Rehabilitation helps you get active and keep moving, which reduces your risk of blood clots and related complications. 

Lower risk of injury

Suffering an injury increases your risk of getting injured again but participating in rehab reduces your risk of future injury. Restoring mobility and rebuilding strength through physical therapy helps balance your body. 

Rehab gives you the ability to return to your normal activities safely and with less pain. To find out how a rehabilitation program could help you, schedule a consultation with our team.
