What To Expect From Spinal Rehab

by Hugh Larson

Spinal rehabilitation can help you through the pain of an injury or illness. If you have recently learned that spinal rehab is available and recommended to you, you are in good company. In fact, you can benefit from spinal rehab very quickly.

Want to know more about the process? Here's what you should know about spinal rehab.

What Happens During Your First Appointment?

Your first appointment with a spinal rehab professional will involve asking questions about your condition and what types of pain or sensation you experience. You will be assessed and evaluated based on your current status, diagnosis, prognosis, and goals.

During this process, a professional will work with you to create a treatment plan. In the upcoming appointments, you can put the treatment plan into action with a specialist. Your plan will be completely individualized for your own needs.

What Are the Benefits of Spinal Rehab?

Spinal rehab offers a number of benefits, with the core benefit being focused on helping clients live as independently as possible. This helps them perform tasks that are part of the routine safely. Clients learn how to use their wheelchairs and other assistive devices. They also learn how to bathe, dress, and perform other tasks.

Family members and other caregivers can also participate in your spinal rehab. They learn how to help you so that you are comfortable with the assistance they provide, and they also gain confidence in your skills.

You can also gain access to other resources in spinal rehab, including other professionals, like physical therapists and dieticians. You can also ask about peer support groups and other help available.

What Exercises & Activities Will You Do?

Each individual will have a different kind of plan in place. Your treatment plan could look very different from another person's plan.

Your plan may involve a lot of stretches to improve flexibility as well as a lot of exercises you will use to build strength. You will also perform exercises that are functional, helping you to participate in daily tasks as you build the ability to complete different tasks, such as transferring yourself to a bed or moving from one seat to another.

About Me

I have worked in a supportive role in the medical industry for over 20 years, and I have been amazed at the advances in medicine that have been made. While it is always great to hear about a new medication that helps cure a disease or a new surgical procedure that can help someone live a normal life again after an injury, I have been especially amazed at the research that has shown just how much our physical and mental health are connected. Since I keep on top of all of the amazing medical studies being performed and I know others are too busy to hunt them down themselves, I decided to start a blog to share my favorite health tips for keeping both your mind and body healthy.
