Rehabilitation at Wholistic Health Centre
Day to day activities, like sitting for hours at your office, home, car, or even what we might be doing at the gym can cause harm in the way of muscle or joint overload, giving rise to faulty, dysfunctional movement. Functional rehabilitation is used to negate the effects of these activities and forms one of the centerpieces of our treatment approach.
There are two main areas we look at with rehabilitation:
- Improve performance
- Improve function
At Wholistic Health Centre, our concept of rehabilitation is progressive. It encompasses many forms of what is known as ‘active care’ and involves sequenced exercises and stretching for maximum healing.
Rehabilitation is based on deficiencies or muscular imbalances that have been detected during your functional movement assessment. It consists of exercises that get your body to move in ways in which it was designed to move, to correct dysfunctional patterns or habits of movement which have been adopted over time from poor and repetitive movement. It is used to improve overall function, so your body can heal faster, perform better, and be more resilient to injury in the future.
Strengthening our bodies is the most important element of injury prevention.”
Dr John Infante, Chiropractor
Rehabilitation programs are developed for all of our patients based on clinical presentation. All of the programs we develop can be done by patients in the privacy of their own home.
We teach you in a one-on-one setting to ensure you understand the correct movements and benefits that they are designed to elicit. These are tailored exercises which are incorporated into your activities of daily living, whether that be work, home or lifestyle.
We work with you through the phases of rehabilitation at the pace that your body can handle, and the amount of work you are able to commit to. for a certain amount of time each week. It’s vital that you reinforce our treatment with rehab on your own.
