Rehab Q & A

Gallagher Chiropractic & Medical Wellness

Who can benefit from rehab?

After an injury or illness, or when you have a physical disability, you may benefit from a variety of rehab methods that help restore movement and improve your quality of life. At Gallagher Chiropractic & Medical Wellness, we provide rehabilitation for issues with muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and bones to help you regain mobility and minimize pain.

Our wellness team takes a comprehensive approach to rehab, combining our knowledge of chiropractic treatments and medical care. We provide patients of all ages with evidence-based physical exercises and therapies, so they can get back to living their lives and doing the things they enjoy.

What advantages does rehab provide?

In addition to regaining mobility and function and managing pain, rehab also focuses on helping you prevent further complications as you recover.

You may need rehab for several conditions at once, and therefore need a multidisciplinary approach to your care. If you don’t fully recover from an existing condition, or make progress toward a more mobile, pain-free lifestyle, you can easily develop secondary physical issues.

Our team takes a medical and chiropractic approach to address the underlying causes of your medical condition or injury so we can work together toward your complete rehabilitation. We are as concerned with your overall health and well-being as we are with managing your pain.

What types of therapeutic exercise can I expect as part of my rehab?

Everyone’s condition and circumstances are different, and our medical and chiropractic experts create a customized rehab plan that works best for your unique needs and health goals.

Typically, rehabilitation after injury or illness includes:

  • A functional exam to customize your therapeutic exercise routine, in which we note any functional impairments and help you accomplish daily tasks
  • Therapeutic exercise for regaining strength, mobility, and range of motion
  • Conservative, non-narcotic pain treatment and management

First, we may start you with some simple movements or exercises. As you gain strength and the pain becomes more tolerable, your exercises increase. You may feel like you’re doing a lot of hard work at times, but we monitor your progress each step of the way and prescribe a combination of therapies and movements that contribute to your overall recovery in a healthy and effective manner.
