Injury Rehab

Personalized Programs Focused on Comprehensive & Speedy Recovery

Recovering from an injury can be a lengthy process. Severe injuries can leave you totally or partially immobilized. It is important to make a full recovery before resuming life as normal. The most efficient and effective recovery process, for most patients, is injury rehabilitation.

Injury rehabilitation at Allied Services Integrated Health System can take many forms. Each program is customized to meet the unique needs of a patient. Rehabilitation may consist of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and more.

Our injury rehab programs include:

  • Back injury rehab
  • Foot and ankle injury rehab
  • Knee injury rehab
  • Neck injury rehab
  • Shoulder injury rehab, traumatic injury rehab

Acute Care

Before beginning injury rehabilitation, patients will need to complete the acute care phase of their recovery. Acute care is short-term medical care designed to address the most pressing aspects of an injury. This includes stopping bleeding, closing up wounds, and diagnosing other complications caused by the injury. Acute care typically takes place in a hospital. If injury rehabilitation is required, patients are normally provided with a referral during this phase.

Injury Rehab Checklist

It is important to have an injury addressed as soon as possible. The earlier a patient begins their recovery, the easier it will be for their body to go through the healing process.

Injury recovery often involves the following steps:

  • The acute care phase
  • A referral for injury rehabilitation
  • An assessment with a rehabilitation therapist
  • Building a personalized recovery plan with your rehabilitation therapist
  • Creating the rehabilitation schedule
  • Performing exercises at rehabilitation and at home to heal and strengthen the body
  • Undergoing regular evaluations with your rehabilitation specialist
  • Making adjustments to your recovery plan as needed

The goal of injury rehabilitation is to both help the body recover and prevent future injuries. Rehabilitation therapists understand that patients are eager to resume their normal lives and activities. This is why programs are designed to heal injuries as quickly as possible without cutting corners on full recovery.
