What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a process that assists in your recovery after a serious injury and forms a vital part of chronic pain management. In addition to reducing pain and restoring function, rehabilitation can help you undertake light exercise without getting too out of breath.

Dr. Yoder is an expert in using rehabilitation techniques to help patients with back and neck pain and problems such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Fractures (broken bones)
  • Ligament tears
  • Tendon ruptures
  • Meniscal tears
  • Dislocations
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Joint instability

He also offers effective rehabilitation programs for patients with chronic conditions like arthritis.

Dr. Yoder creates a personalized rehabilitation program for you that factors in not just your condition and the effect it's having on you, but other issues such as your age, goals, diet, and environment. This holistic approach ensures you get the most benefit from rehabilitation.

What are the benefits of rehabilitation?

Dr. Yoder's rehabilitation services help your injuries to heal by increasing blood flow to the injured area. More blood means more oxygen, nutrients, and growth factors, all of which your body needs to repair itself.

Keeping moving is also vital to successful recovery. If you don't use your joints and muscles, they weaken and start to contract, causing problems like shortened ligaments and adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder).

However, if you exercise incorrectly, you could affect the tissue repair process and worsen your pain. Rehabilitation helps you move in the right way, so you stay flexible and retain muscle tone without overstressing tissues and joints.

How long will my rehabilitation program take?

There's no set period for a rehabilitation program, as each patient has unique needs. Dr. Yoder designs your program to suit the seriousness of your condition and adjusts it as required depending on how you respond.

Acute injuries like muscle or tendon strains could take several weeks or months to heal, while chronic conditions like arthritis are incurable, so your rehabilitation could continue indefinitely.
