Medical rehabilitation is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those who are born with or may have developed physical impairments or disabilities. Physiatrists specialize in restoring optimal function to people with injuries to the muscles, bones, ligaments, or nervous system. Unlike other medical specialties that focus on a medical “cure,” the goals of the physiatrist are to maximize patients’ independence in activities of daily living and improve quality of life. At LA Health Solutions, we understand that it can be frustrating not being able to perform a task that others may find to be simple. Our seasoned professionals have undergone thorough training and gained the necessary experience that helps them to be sympathetic to all injury types, allowing them to find a treatment path that works best for you.
A wide range of therapeutic treatments is available to help you regain any lost physical abilities and/or job-related skills. This medical care can require any course of action from electrical muscle stimulation to ice/heat therapy that will ultimately promote healing and comfort. Our use of intersegmental traction tables provides passive stretching and regional mobilization to help reestablish the normal range of the body’s spine. We also provide cold laser therapy, neuromuscular re-education, a variety of soft tissue trigger point techniques and ultrasound therapy as needed to decrease healing time. Our goal is to get you back on your feet and functioning as quickly as possible.
If you have any questions concerning treatment or would like to speak to a professional to find out if medical rehabilitation is an option for you, please give LA Health Solutions a call to schedule an appointment. The team of physiatrists here at LA Health Solutions is eager to make your life both easier and pain-free.
