Pure Wellness Auto and Work Injury Rehabilitation

Injury Rehabilitation: physical exercise and stretching restores strength and range of motion at Pure Wellness Chiropractic

An injury of any type whether an auto or work injury can cause a great deal of responses in the body, including inflammation, muscle spasms, ligament tension, laxity and exhaustion, as well as other symptoms. At Pure Wellness, we rehabilitate your injuries using the latest and most effective techniques and equipment in a three-phase program.

Stretching and exercising enables the healing process through increasing your muscle flexibility, strength and endurance. When participating in our rehabilitation program, we assist you in returning to your pre work or car injury status, as well as reducing your risk of a re-injury.

Three Steps to Faster Recovery

Each phase begins with a 5-minute bike warm up to increase blood flow and stimulate both sides of the body.

Phase I -Re-educate the joints
Accomplished through basic stretches to increase range of motion (ROM), followed by ice to reduce swelling and spasms.

Phase II - Re-train muscles and ligaments
Continue basic stretches with low resistive exercises to further increase ROM and also increase strength, endurance, and tone. Followed by ice to decrease any persistent swelling and spasms.

After completion of Phase II, the patient is typically given an individualized home-stretching program to maintain flexibility and strength at home.

Phase III - Strengthen the muscles
Resistive exercises utilizing weight machines to gain full ROM and 100% strength (no further ice treatment). This phase is very important-without the program the muscles will begin to atrophy!
