Rehabilitation Q & A

Why do I need rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a comprehensive approach to healing. The purpose is to restore your normal functions, improve your ability to perform everyday tasks, and enhance your quality of life. Your chiropractor may recommend rehabilitation for any of the following reasons:

  • Chronic pain relief
  • Neuromuscular conditions
  • Orthopedic surgery, including back surgery

Rehabilitation may also be necessary if you have birth defects or genetic disorders that impact your normal functions. You may even need rehabilitation after suffering from severe trauma, such as a complete fracture or broken back.

What happens during rehabilitation sessions?

Los Altos Family Chiropractic is dedicated to providing up-to-date rehabilitation services in a supportive, caring environment. Not only is your entire rehabilitation plan tailored to you, so is each and every session. During your rehabilitation appointments, you may undergo any of the following therapies:

  • Manual traction
  • Myofascial release
  • Cranial sacral therapy
  • Passive joint mobilization
  • Muscle release technique
  • Trigger point therapy

Los Altos Family Chiropractic also offers massage therapy and acupuncture, among other healing modalities, to help relieve pain and promote healing. Over time, you should find that your strength and mobility improve, while any pain and stiffness you have resolve.

How long will I need rehabilitation?

Committing to your rehabilitation program at Los Altos Family Chiropractic is important to ensure successful treatment. In the beginning, you’re going to need more frequent visits; as many as two to four times per week. But you’re likely going to have “homework,” including strengthening exercises, to perform at home between visits.

As you continue improving and healing over the following months, fewer treatments are necessary. Your chiropractor gradually tapers you down to about one session a week until you’re fully healed.

Rehabilitation treatment plans can last for just three or four months, all the way up to a year or more. The team at Los Altos Family Chiropractic is available for as long as you may need them.
