Who Uses Active Rehabilitation?

All sorts of people visit our clinic in Port Moody & Coquitlam for a variety of reasons. Some have been in a motor vehicle accident and are dealing with relatively serious injuries, while others may have gotten a sprain or strain playing a sport. Active rehab is also used after surgery, and you may benefit from active rehab after a long illness or a period of hospitalization.

Rehabilitation promotes faster recovery from a broad range of different problems because it can help reduce pain and stiffness, improve your mental state, and encourage blood flow, which aids healing.

What Does Active Rehabilitation Do?

Physically, patients can move more easily with less pain, and active rehab also improves flexibility and strengthens key muscle groups that can help to stabilize joints, the spine, and your core. Being more active during recuperation can reduce inflammation and swelling and help you get more confident once back on your feet after a long period of being laid up or in bed. In turn, it improves your balance and leaves you less prone to setbacks associated with falls.

  • Stay fitter for longer: Your circulation improves when you perform the exercise – no matter how light – and that makes it easier and quicker for your body to heal itself after injury, surgery, or illness. Some of the techniques you learn during active rehab can also be used after you regain fitness to prevent further injuries and keep you fitter and healthier in the longer term.
  • Future-proof your recovery: Many patients who use active rehab in Port Moody and Coquitlam take fewer drugs to relieve pain, get back to their jobs or hobbies far quicker, and are better equipped to deal with setbacks or relapses in the future. That makes the process faster than when they start trying to regain fitness from scratch, and the fitter you are heading into an illness, injury, or surgical procedure, the better equipped your body will be to heal.
