At the office of Therapeutics Unlimited, we are trained develop customized treatments for acute and chronic conditions to restore better health and function to our patients. But once an injury is sustained, the risk of recurrence in the same area of the body increases. This can also lead to recurring injuries, which can worsen over time and limit functional movement.
Through our dynamic, therapeutic approaches, we help decrease the chance of re-injury. We do this through hands-on therapies, customized exercise plans, and just as importantly, patient education that can help you build healthier habits.
As a profession, physical therapists have been utilizing more functional exercises to better care for patients and establish the importance of physical therapy in the scope of rehabilitative care. By supporting the importance of the progression to functional exercises with research, and utilizing a wide variety of targeted exercises, we can help patients achieve their goals in a timelier fashion and decrease risk of re-injury.
Preventing recurring injuries can be most successful by first preparing the body before an initial injury can occur, then using these tips following any physical activity:
- Listen to your body
- Understand proper warm-up and cool-down techniques
- Seek treatment if you experience pain
- Improve physical readiness
