A chiropractic rehabilitation program is a treatment program designed to help a person recover from an injury, a disorder, or chronic pain. Every rehabilitation program is different because it is customized for the patient's individual problems and concerns. The ultimate goal for any chiropractic rehab program is to help the patient achieve the best state of wellness possible. For people who are recovering from an injury or illness, this means returning them to the same state they were in before struck by injury or illness.
The rehab program depends on the individual and their specific injury, disorder, or pain. For a chiropractic rehabilitation program, the focus is the spine. The chiropractic care provider will perform gentle spinal adjustments on a regular basis, which allows patients to start feeling better very quickly in many cases. There are also other non-invasive methods of healing available in a chiropractic rehab program. Massage therapy, ultrasound therapy, customized strengthening exercise, and foam rollers may all be part of a chiropractic rehab program. As the patient recovers, they may also use tools like orthotic and ergonomic devices. These devices can help patients move better and thus be better able to resist a re-injury or recurrence of the problem in the future.
Chiropractic rehab programs can vary considerably based on the specific patient and their individual injuries. For the majority of people who have a chronic pain problem, the treatments will usually be spread over several treatments to begin with but the chiropractor will never force patients to commit to any certain regimen or program length. The immediate goal is to get the patient out of pain, and then to make sure that the problem is resolved directly at its origin so that the pain won't return. For people who are recovering from an injury, the duration of treatment may be similar. Once the patient is out of pain, the focus will turn to helping the patient grow stronger until they are at their pre-injury health.
