Don't Settle For Life’s Aches & Pains

Do not settle for a life of aches and pains.

In fact, participating in a rehabilitation program could help prevent some of your daily aches and pains, especially if you have a chronic condition like arthritis.

 

At R2 Wellness Centers, our medical team offers customized rehabilitation and exercise plans for people with arthritis, low back pain, and more. Rehabilitation can help minimize pain and lessen your reliance on pain medication to get through your day.

 

The benefits of rehabilitation

Chronic pain can make daily life uncomfortable. Whether knee pain bothers you while you are walking the dog or arthritis in your hands makes preparing dinner painful, pain affects everyone in different ways.

 

When you experience musculoskeletal pain, it can be tempting to avoid the activities that cause pain. But in many cases, avoiding activity only makes the pain worse.

 

Rehabilitation and exercise at R2 Wellness Centers can give you the ability to get active safely and stay that way. Increasing strength and mobility can decrease pain over time for people with arthritis and other pain conditions.

 

Exercise and rehab have whole-body benefits, from boosting blood flow to decreasing inflammation. A few of the best benefits of rehab include:

Stronger joints and muscles, combined with increased mobility, means that daily activities can be more comfortable. You may be less likely to experience aches and pains that hinder your quality of life.


Rehabilitation can help retain your body so that you may be able to prevent future bouts of back pain.

What to expect with your rehab program?

Rehabilitation at R2 Wellness Centers includes targeted exercises and other therapies designed to minimize pain and increase mobility. You may participate in a combination of passive and active exercises over several months.

 

Arthritis rehabilitation often includes a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and instruction on exercises you can do at home each day. Options for low back pain may include physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, non-surgical decompression, hot and cold therapy, and physiotherapy.

 

Your rehabilitation and exercise program changes as you get stronger. Our medical team adjusts your exercises and therapies so that you continue seeing improvements in daily life.

Core stabilization exercises can reduce low back pain.

Rehab programs generally start with two to three sessions a week.  Your sessions continue until you achieve the functional lifestyle goal, we have established for your treatment during our thorough intake process.  Our rehabilitation program is different from many others in that we know that our success is based upon your success, that being increased ability to live your life the way you want to!
