Rehabilitative Exercise Q & A

by Jason Ablett, DC

Why do I need Rehabilitative Exercise?

It is common to go through Rehabilitative Exercise after you have had an injury or orthopedic surgery. These are not the only times you may need Rehabilitative Exercise though. Rehabilitative Exercise might be necessary if you suffer from:

  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid or osteoarthritis
  • Skeletal irregularities

The purpose of Rehabilitative Exercise is to improve:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Joint mobility
  • Pain levels

Dr. Ablett customizes a Rehabilitative Exercise plan that suits your needs, so you can recover as quickly as possible.

Will I need Rehabilitative Exercise after a personal injury?

Possibly. Dr. Ablett is an established personal injury expert who testifies on behalf of his patients who need medical analyses for legal purposes. No matter how minor or severe an injury may be, your body takes time to heal.

Rehabilitative Exercise sessions ensure that your body goes through proper rehabilitation under the guidance of a medical professional, so you recover fully and regain your strength. This can help prevent re-injury from occurring at a later time.  

What should I expect from Rehabilitative Exercise sessions?

Because a Rehabilitative Exercise plan requires you to come to the office two or three times per week, you get familiar with Dr. Ablett’s treatments. Although he may provide some treatments each week, he may opt to perform other treatments less frequently. Generally, Rehabilitative Exercise sessions include some or all of the following:

  • Static stretching
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Custom exercise plans
  • Fascia release therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy

For exercises, you might increase or decrease weight or repetitions, depending on how well you are healing. Dr. Ablett collaborates with medical providers in the Kirkland, Washington area, so you get a well-rounded treatment. Plan on wearing loose, comfortable clothing to each Rehabilitative Exercise session.

Are Rehabilitative Exercise sessions painful?

Rehabilitative Exercise should progressively (yet gradually) get tougher. This means that week after week, you should be getting stronger and more flexible. It is common to have some soreness and stiffness after a Rehabilitative Exercise session, but you should not be in any pain — during or after. If you do feel pain during your visit or feel that you are overly sore the next day, let Dr. Ablett know. He may need to make some adjustments in your exercises or stretching.
