Rehabilitation Q & A

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is the process of recovering after an illness or injury. The process isn’t always quick or easy, but taking the right steps toward rehabilitation can help to restore your full mobility and ease any pain that lingers as you recover.

Charlotte Chiropractic and Rehab designs and personalizes your rehabilitation plan to give you the best possible quality of life once you recover. The practice can help you understand what to expect throughout the process and what you can expect your life to be like after the process is complete.

Your plan helps you regain your strength, your mobility, and your comfort.

When do I need rehabilitation services?

Rehabilitation services may be necessary after an injury, illness, or surgery that affects your functioning. Any of these can make it difficult for you to move freely because of soreness, weakness, or instability. Charlotte Chiropractic and Rehab can help you complete a full recovery after:

  • Auto accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Repetitive use injuries
  • Work-related or personal injuries
  • Surgery

Successful rehabilitation can help you avoid future injuries, even if you don’t regain your entire mobility or balance. If you don’t have an injury, taking part in rehabilitation services at Charlotte Chiropractic and Rehab can help you age smoothly and prevent mobility loss.

Which approach should I take to rehabilitation?

At Charlotte Chiropractic Rehab, Dr. Maul creates your rehabilitation plan according to your personal needs and preferences. He selects treatments that fit with your specific injury and the symptoms it causes. Your rehabilitation might include the following and other approaches depending on your needs.

Physical rehabilitation

Stretching and exercising your muscles in physical therapy restores balance and keeps them moving. These specific movements and stretches can help you, for example, return to work promptly after an injury.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care centers around restoring the alignment of your spine. Once your spine is perfectly aligned, other parts of your musculoskeletal system follow suit to come into alignment and reduce pain or mobility issues.

Massage therapy

A licensed massage therapist at Charlotte Chiropractic and Rehab adjusts and manipulates your soft tissues to loosen them and relieve pressure and stress.

Other possible treatments in your rehabilitation include cold laser therapy, acupuncture, and dry needling, and myofascial release therapy for trigger points.
