Motor Vehicle Accidents
Many motorists quickly recover from accidents, but for some, pain and immobility can last for a longer time, impacting a patient's ability to work and function day-to-day. Active rehab can form part of a more comprehensive strategy aimed at getting the subjects of motor vehicle accidents back to normal more quickly.
Whiplash is a popular term for the neck sprain or neck strain that occurs after the sudden jolting forward and backward of the neck, similar to the crack of a whip (from which it gets its name). When the head unexpectedly jerks back and forth, the muscles and tendons in the neck get pulled and strained, causing 'neck strain.'
An ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments located where the leg bones connect to the foot bones. Ligaments are formed from strong, fibrous tissue that holds your joints together, and when you twist or turn your ankle in an abnormal manner, that can cause the ligaments to stretch and even tear in some cases.
Shoulder impingement is a relatively common injury, and although shoulder impingement can be painful and debilitating, it can improve pretty rapidly with the right amount of rest and the right active rehab plan. Shoulder impingement affects people of all ages, and it’s often referred to as swimmer’s shoulder – but you can become affected in a variety of ways.
Benefits of Active Rehabilitation
Active rehabilitation, also often referred to as active rehab, is a low-impact exercise program formulated by a Kinesiologist professional or a massage therapist according to your specific needs and abilities. Active rehab is designed to reinstate the range of movement and reduce pain after an injury or illness and get you back to normal fitness levels. It can also be used in conjunction with a range of other treatments.
Active rehabilitation is important for recovery and healing from injury, illness, or surgery. It helps to improve mobility, strength, and flexibility, as well as reduce pain and discomfort. Active rehabilitation also helps to restore physical and mental functioning, as well as help to prevent further injury or chronic pain.
