Rest alone after an injury usually does not relieve the problems caused by inflammation and spasm; for example, a muscle in spasm cannot get adequate blood supply to heal. The body adapts and protects the injured area long after healing has started. These protective mechanisms alter movement of the whole musculoskeletal system and increase strain on other areas. Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible after an injury.
Accidents happen, people get hurt!
It is important to seek the care of a trained professional who will work to reduce inflammation, spasm and pain. The goals are to increase motion through passive and or active stretching and to strengthen in order to prevent re-injury. At Priority Medical & Rehab Centers, our doctors work to help the patient get back to pre-injury status as quickly as possible. We provide care utilizing medical and chiropractic specialties, massage therapy, physiotherapy and rehabilitative exercise.
