How Injury Rehabilitation Works

Injury rehabilitation is a key component of injury treatment. Its primary function is to strengthen the part of the body that was recently injured so that it functions smoothly once again. It involves step-by-step exercises that prepare the injured area for normal functionality. This all begins with stretching the affected area. Then, exercises start by gently moving the injured body part through a range of motions. After a while, weights may be used to strengthen the injured area.

The scar tissue that builds up after the injury heals will cause the injured area to become tight or stiff. Tightness or stiffness in the injured area puts you at risk of reinjuring the area, so we walk you through a series of stretches and warmup techniques that will ensure a successful rehabilitation. When you start normal activities again, start slowly. Your body will let you know when you are overexerting yourself.

If an auto accident injury is stopping you from participating in activities, call (816) 886-9005 or schedule an appointment for a consultation at Injury Treatment Centers of Kansas City.
