What's Involved in Rehabilitation?

Physiatry is a medical specialty that aims to restore function, range of motion, and independence. Injuries, diseases, and disorders can make it difficult or impossible to complete certain tasks — even simple or mundane ones. With physical therapy and rehabilitation, you can condition your body and find ways to overcome these challenges. 

At The Spine and Sports Center in Sugarland and Houston, Texas, Dr. Benoy Benny can lay out a rehabilitation therapy plan to help you overcome any physical challenges you may be experiencing due to physical trauma or illness, and get back on the path to wellness. 

The rehabilitation process 

If you’ve been injured or sick, getting back into the swing of things can be difficult. Many people feel betrayed by their bodies when they struggle with tasks that used to feel effortless. 

One major part of rehabilitation is physical therapy. This is a broad term that refers to exercises and treatments that restore function and mobility. Your physical therapy plan depends entirely on your condition, but it might include: 

While physical therapy focuses on rehabilitating your body, there’s more to the process than that. Dr. Benny takes a multidisciplinary approach to make sure all your needs are met. He works with you to make your daily routine as painless and productive as possible. 

This includes developing solutions to unique problems. If you’re struggling to accommodate for physical changes or limitations due to an injury or illness, Dr. Benny can find ways to make things easier.

When rehabilitation is necessary

Physical therapy isn’t just for patients who have suffered injuries. Rehabilitation can improve the lives of anyone suffering from limited mobility, flexibility, or strength. This includes patients suffering from: 

Rehabilitation is also recommended for those recovering from surgery, especially major procedures like hip replacement. If your body has been weakened by injury, illness, or surgery, rehabilitation can help improve your daily functioning and quality of life. 

There is no universal rehabilitation program, which is why it’s important to find a physician who listens to you, assesses your condition, and creates a customized rehabilitation plan. 

To get started on your own rehabilitation therapy program, schedule a consultation with Dr. Benny today. You can get in touch by calling our location closest to you or booking an appointment online
