Functional rehab treatment plans from Mindbody Med in Seattle help you recover from auto accidents, sports, and workplace injuries. We combine our chiropractic care and massage treatments with functional rehabilitation to reduce pain while restoring function and performance. Our staff will evaluate your symptoms and create a fully customized plan to maximize your journey to recovery.
What Is Functional Rehabilitation?
Functional rehabilitation began as a sports injury rehabilitation treatment. It’s also now used to treat work-related injuries and chronic pain. Instead of strengthening just your injured muscles, functional rehab focuses on conditioning the areas of your body that aren’t functioning correctly to build them back up. Think of it as resetting your biomechanics to stop future pain and injury from occurring in the first place.
Developed For Athletes
Chiropractic care has become an essential part of keeping athletes healthy and safe. For example, the National Football League requires every team to have a chiropractor on staff. Even the US Olympic training facility has a chiropractor as their medical director. You can benefit from chiropractic care just as much, even if you are not an athlete.
Restoring Strength & Movement
Our chiropractic injury rehabilitation programs can treat a variety of muscle and joint problems. There are many painful conditions we can address with functional rehab.
Treating The Cause Not The Symptom
For example, the source of your back pain may not lie solely in your back. It could come from a misaligned spine but also from tilted hips or feet. Back pain rehabilitation for you may include chiropractic care for the spine and exercises that promote healthy positioning of the hips and feet. This will help you prevent future injury to the same area.
Our Rehab Process
Your first session with one of our chiropractors typically consists of an interview about your medical history—including any previous injuries—and a physical exam to test your body’s current level of function. Treatment begins in the second session. A full treatment course usually takes over a month to complete and includes multiple phases. Your chiropractor will work with you to design a program that best fits your needs and schedule.
