Musculoskeletal rehabilitation is a doctor-supervised program designed for patients with impairments or disabilities due to disease, trauma, or other issues related to muscles and bones. A complete musculoskeletal rehabilitation program may improve function, reduce symptoms, and restore a patient’s independence.
Many different types of patients can be given a musculoskeletal diagnosis, which can affect joints, muscles, nerves, and other parts of the body. Some of the most common problems in this area are related to bone fractures, joint replacements, spinal injuries, and arthritis. It is important to treat any physical debility with inpatient therapy, because doing so may increase the chances that you can return to a more normal life.
What should you look for in a rehabilitation program?
While treatment varies from patient to patient, all patients should participate in exercises that help with their individual problems. Therefore, comprehensive rehabilitation therapy should focus on the specific areas that will help you return to your normal daily activities. To accomplish this, you should look for a rehabilitation provider that offers care for your individual needs and includes programs focused on improvements in:
- Getting in and out of bed
- Proper diet
- Dressing, Bathing and Daily Life
