Know Your Options for Speedy Recovery

 

After you had successfully completed your physical rehabilitation program it is important to continue select regiments of your rehab routine at home in order to minimize the chances of re-injury as well as for the overall health benefits.  Instead of professional rehab equipment, you can use inexpensive, at-home exercise equipment such as; balance boards, exercise balls, stationary peddlers, etc.

 

Physical therapy's primary goal is to return the patient to his former strength level in the injured body part. This usually means that the patient will undergo exercises to rebuild the muscle lost during that convalescence. The physical therapist might require  rehabilitation equipment in such cases to take the form of balance boards, or physical therapy tables. Other types of equipment used by physical therapists could include general exercise equipment such as resistance bands and exercise balls. Exercises prescribed by the physical therapist should be carefully followed by the patient if he is continuing his therapy at home. The patient's form while doing the activities needs to be paid careful attention, since poor form could result in further injury. Continued compliance with the therapist's recommendations is necessary in order to properly rebuild the muscle and prevent one side of the body being stronger than the other. This could lead to poor posture and pain or increased risk for injury.

 

 Always consult with your doctor or chiropractor to ensure appropriate selection and proper use of you at-home rehabilitation equipment.
