Rehabilitation Q & A

What is Rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation or "rehab" is designed to aid in the recovery process after a significant illness, injury, or surgery. The goal of rehab is to enhance and restore your natural abilities. You may need rehab as a result of any of the following conditions:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Broken bone
  • Torn ligament
  • Ruptured tendon
  • Major surgery
  • Chronic illness


In some cases, your rehab may focus on healing an injury or restoring natural functions that were temporarily lost because of a health problem. In other instances, your rehab may emphasize adapting to your "new normal."

If you've experienced a health crisis that caused a permanent change in the way your body functions, a physical therapist can help you learn to adapt to these changes. Physical therapy can also assist you as you learn to use new tools, such as a cane or walker.

How Do Physical Therapists Help with Rehabilitation?

The physical therapists at Results Physical Therapy are healthcare professionals. They work to help their patients maintain and restore bodily movement and function.

The overarching goal of physical therapy is to increase the patient's overall health and quality of life. Your physical therapist will use a wide range of therapeutic techniques to help you achieve your treatment goals.

Your physical therapist may assist you with any of the following:

  • Exercises to build muscle strength and stamina
  • Stretches to improve joint and muscle flexibility
  • Hot and cold therapy to relieve pain or swelling
  • Learning to use assistive devices like a walker


Physical therapists at Results Physical Therapy also specialize in manual therapy. This type of physical therapy uses hands-on treatment to address issues affecting your joints or muscles. Manual therapy is often helpful in relieving muscle tension or reducing pain.

What Can I Expect From a Rehabilitation Session?

Your first session will begin with an in-depth consultation with your physical therapist. Your physical therapist first reviews your medical history and asks you about your symptoms. Next, your physical therapist helps you set treatment goals and discusses possible treatment outcomes.

Your physical therapist will guide you through a series of treatments and exercises designed to meet your individual needs. You may also receive recommendations for exercises to perform at home.
