Rehabilitation Q & A
Why is orthopedic rehabilitation important?
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a critical part of orthopedic surgical care because it helps patients return to pre-surgery levels of mobility whenever possible and as quickly as possible. Plus, a skilled orthopedic rehabilitation specialist can help patients understand the steps they can take and techniques they can use to avoid injury in the future, such as techniques for improving flexibility or for specific activities such as lifting or standing or sitting for long hours.
Are there different types of rehabilitation?
Yes, there are many different types of rehabilitation programs and techniques developed to address patients' varying physical needs and capabilities, different types of injuries, and end goals. For instance, some types of rehabilitation are aimed at helping patients regain specific types of strength required by their occupations so they can return to work as quickly as possible. Other types of rehabilitative services are aimed at older patients including those with chronic health issues such as osteoporosis.
How long will I need to undergo rehabilitation therapy?
That depends on the extent of your injury and how quickly your body responds to rehabilitation. Dr. Tyorkin will explain the average length of rehabilitation during your office visit so you know what to expect.
How will the doctor know which types of rehabilitation are right for me?
Dr. Tyorkin understands the critical role rehabilitation plays in helping patients relieve pain and discomfort and regain range of motion, strength and flexibility, he works individually with each patient to develop a plan of rehabilitative care that addresses the patient's unique needs as well as their individual health profile and goals. During your consultations, he'll help you understand your options so you can feel confident you're getting the care you need for optimal recovery.
