Physical Rehabilitation Q & A

What is physical rehabilitation?

Many people have enduring pain that can be managed but persists for a long time or, in some cases, never goes away. This pain is often the result of a medical condition that affects the brain, nerves, bones, joints, spinal cord, ligaments, tendons, and/or muscles.

Learning how to manage your pain and maintain a higher quality of life is the goal of physical rehabilitation. The goal of rehabilitation at the Carolinas Center for Advanced Management of Pain is to maximize your independence, including managing your day-to-day tasks, so you can enjoy life.

What conditions can benefit from physical rehabilitation?

A wide range of physical impairments or disabilities can benefit from physical rehabilitation, including those that affect the neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, or rheumatological systems. Specific conditions that can be improved through physical rehabilitation include:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Brain injury
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Geriatric frailty
  • Pulmonary diseases

Once your condition is diagnosed, your physician at the Carolinas Center for Advanced Management of Pain creates a rehabilitation strategy to help you stay as active as possible and address any changes in your condition as they arise.

The physicians at the Carolinas Center for Advanced Management of Pain may also recruit specialists outside of the practice to participate in your care. By incorporating physical therapy, psychological counseling, speech therapy, and drug therapy, physical rehabilitation can help you manage your condition long-term.

How long does physical rehabilitation treatment last?

The exact length of time you’ll need to participate in physical rehabilitation depends on your condition, your health, and your compliance with the rehabilitation recommendations.

If you’re recovering from surgery, an accident, or illness and regain full function, physical rehabilitation may simply be temporary. If you have a chronic condition, you may need physical rehabilitation services for your entire life. Physical rehabilitation doesn’t seek to “cure” your condition, but to help you learn how to enjoy an improved quality of life in spite of it.
