Rehabilitation Q & A

What is exercise rehabilitation?

Exercise rehabilitation is an integral part of your injury recovery plan. While complete rest does help your muscles, tissues, ligaments, and tendons heal after an injury, exercise rehabilitation builds strength and flexibility to reduce the chances of reinjury.

What are the benefits of exercise rehabilitation?

Exercise rehabilitation speeds up your recovery process, so you can return to your day-to-day activities sooner. Some of the most common exercise rehabilitation benefits can help improve:

  • Muscle strength
  • Flexibility
  • Range of motion
  • Mobility
  • Stability
  • Functionality
  • Endurance
  • Pain management

By incorporating dynamic stretches, muscle retraining, and strengthening exercises into your recovery plan, you can help prevent tissue and muscle atrophy while minimizing the potential of reinjury in the same area.

How does exercise rehabilitation work?

The types of exercises and stretches that the State Line Health Care LLC team recommends depends entirely on your injury. However, some of the most common rehabilitation exercises available include:

Foam rolling

Using a foam roller helps promote myofascial release in your tissues. Much like a massage, a foam roller helps alleviate tension from knots, tight muscles, and trigger points. When you regularly use a foam roller on your legs, hips, arms, or back, you can effectively manage pain and promote a healthy recovery.

Stretching

Targeted stretches can help improve flexibility and relax your tight muscles to alleviate pain, eliminate muscle tension, and prevent future injuries. The State Line Health Care LLC team demonstrates the right stretches for your recovery plan and show you how to maximize their benefits.

Joint mobility exercises

If you struggle with joint mobility, the team can add joint-specific stretches and exercises to your recovery plan. This helps increase your joint’s range of motion and alleviates joint pain over time.

Strengthening exercises

While rest after an injury is necessary for your healing process, weak or imbalanced muscles can actually put stress on your joints, leading to reinjury. Muscle activation early on in your recovery plan helps prevent reinjury by strengthening your muscles and keeping your body in shape.
