Injury Rehabilitation

Serving Portland OR | Vancouver WA

Injury rehabilitation is the restoration and function of an injured body part. No matter what type of injury you’ve suffered, the best and most effective forms of injury rehabilitation are through physical therapy.

The 4 Stages of Injury Rehabilitation

Injury rehabilitation is effective for proper recovery. Although the best treatment plans are tailored to each patient, the general framework is relatively the same and is broken down into four stages.

  1. Rest & Protect Injury
    The first stage of injury rehabilitation is about preventing further injury and allowing your body to begin healing. The body’s first response to an injury is pain and inflammation. Controlling these responses will help protect your injury and prevent further damage. This stage will often include rest, ice, and medication to control pain and swelling such as NSAIDs. Slings, casts, and medical tape may also be used to protect the injury.
  2. Recover Your Motion
    Pain, inflammation, and swelling after an injury or surgery can impact mobility. Stretching too far or overexertion may slow or reverse the healing process. Specific flexibility training and stretching techniques may be used during this stage to improve range of motion.
  3. Recover Your Strength
    It’s very common after an injury for patients to experience muscle weakness and fatigue. Minimizing muscle loss and maintaining cardiovascular endurance is very important during injury rehabilitation which is why arm cycling, one-legged stationary cycling, and pool exercises are often part of a rehabilitation program.
  4. Recover Your Function
    The last stage of injury rehabilitation is performing activities and movements necessary when the patient returns to the field or work. Exercises to restore coordination, agility, and balance may be used in addition to sport-specific training.
