Functional Rehabilitation

Functional rehabilitation is the process of working towards returning to a person’s maximum level of performance, or independence in daily living, by enhancing the performance of the entire neuromuscular system. Instead of treating only the symptom of the injury, functional rehabilitation looks for the source of the injury and treats that too.

Understanding functional rehabilitation

Functional rehabilitation directly improves the body’s ability to move freely by performing controlled movements in areas of dysfunction, resulting in advancement in strength, conditioning and coordination.

If you are bothered by pain from an old sports injury, car accident or some other injury, or simply need to correct years of poor posture habits, we can help with your rehabilitation.

 
 

 
 

Chiropractors and Functional Rehabilitation

Spinal health is extremely critical to a person’s overall well-being. When the spine and its supporting muscles and other soft tissues are working together properly, the human body is in harmony. Back pain, neck pain and other ailments are less likely to reoccur and people are less susceptible to future injury.

Rehabilitation and recovery from any injury should include healing of these muscles through comprehensive chiropractic care that includes exercise therapy. This will allow the muscles and surrounding tissues to become strong and healthy again, and in turn, fulfil their role in supporting healthy spinal alignment, which is critical in preventing further back and neck pain.

Occupational Therapy and Functional Rehabilitation

Occupational therapists work with clients to provide rehabilitation programmes, activities or techniques to help restore their previous level of function or adapt to their new one.

The role of the occupational therapist is to:

  1. Thoroughly assess a person’s ability to carry out daily tasks.
  2. Identify any functional limitations and rehabilitation goals.
  3. Recommend and prescribe adaptive equipment or home modifications and exercises to improve daily function.
  4. Provide education and advice where required.
  5. Monitor progress and update the rehabilitation programme.

Podiatry and Functional Rehabilitation

The links between abnormal foot function, gait patterns and injury are well-known. Muscles in the lower extremity that cross the ankle, subtalar, midfoot and metatarsophalangeal joints are imperative to normal functioning.

Podiatrists work to make the lower limbs and feet function as close to their optimum as possible through a combination of footwear, orthoses and stretch/strength programmes. Focusing on rehabilitation of lower limb injuries, ankle injuries, muscle strains and tears, knee pain/injuries, hip instability and lower back pain through lower limb alignment, will result in healthy foot function leading to good posture and ongoing optimal health.

Arrange a consultation with one of our experienced therapists to begin your recovery today. We’re looking forward to making you feel better.
