Rehabilitative therapy is available at SC Sports Therapy in San Francisco and the surrounding area. With the direction of Dr. Steven Adams, DC, our team can help patients continue the specific techniques at home to further their recovery.

Benefits of rehabilitative therapy

We understand that each patient is unique and structure our rehabilitative therapy treatment for each patient. We strive to benefit the patient's condition and their overall well-being. We do everything in our power to help patients return to doing the things they love in no time at all.

Rehabilitative therapy focuses on restoring the physical ability and health of an individual following an injury, illness, deformity or surgery. Rehabilitative therapy is often included in addition to other forms of treatment, although many health professionals might recommend rehabilitative therapy as a sole method of treatment. Benefits of our rehabilitative therapy include:

  • Pain management
  • Improved mobility
  • Faster recovery
  • Alternative to surgery
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Many who go through rehabilitative therapy see a quick improvement in their physical strength and ability to function following an injury, illness or surgery. For many, the main benefit of rehabilitative therapy is a reduction in pain, which helps patients avoid relying on opioids for temporary relief.

    For those who want to remain active after an injury or surgery, rehabilitative therapy is a great way to improve overall function and mobility. We can also help patients avoid the same type of injury in the future.

    The Rehabilitative Therapy process

    Rehabilitative therapy is a fairly broad term, covering a wide range of treatments that serve a role in rehabilitative health. At SC Sports Therapy, the type of rehabilitative therapy we provide is unique to each patient through a specific recovery plan for every patient. However, there are specific techniques that are more common than others, including the following:

  • Manual therapy
  • Joint mobilization
  • Strength training
  • Stretching
  • Massage therapy
  • Of course, there is a wide range of other treatments we may utilize during rehabilitative therapy as well. If you have recently endured an injury, illness or surgery that requires you to undergo rehabilitative therapy, give us a call today. Find out how we can help you on the path to a complete and efficient recovery.

    When to consider Rehabilitative Therapy

    If an injury causes enough pain that everyday function continues to be painful and challenging, then rehabilitative therapy can help. Instead of allowing the injury to control one's life, we can help patients recover and live life to the fullest. Since many forms of physical injuries this therapy can help treat do not always display outward signs, it is crucial to seek a professional examination.

    As a chiropractor, Dr. Steven Adams, DC can help to identify the source of the pain and customize the treatment to focus on that source. Rehabilitative therapy can help boost strength, mobility and function. Thus, we encourage anyone in chronic pain or with muscle weakness to schedule an appointment.

    Our team at SC Sports Therapy helps each patient restore physical strength, relieve chronic pain, decrease swelling and feel better. We work hard to not only treat each patient during a visit, but we also help patients implement lifestyle and dietary changes to ensure a speedy recovery.

    Rehabilitative therapy can help patients return to their routine and lead a healthy lifestyle. Since there are varying levels of pain from an injury, the type of rehabilitative therapy will only push a patient so far. We will help to measure the limits a patient needs to follow when recovering.

    Along with that, as the patient continues to recover, we can go over alternative forms of rehabilitative therapy and exercise, such as swimming, hiking and more. This way, the patient can find specific activities they prefer and promote healing. We may also recommend minor dietary changes and regular exercise and stretching at home.

    If you are interested or in need of rehabilitative therapy, then do not hesitate to call us today at 415-413-2237. Schedule an appointment and start the road to healing.
