Acute Therapy:

Acute Rehab begins as soon as possible after an injury. Treatment often utilizes standard modalities and procedures with a focus on pain reduction and the restoration of range of motion. It is designed to provide the appropriate therapeutic intervention, which will stimulate recovery of the injury and promote healing.

Functional Restoration:

Functionally based programs focus rehabilitation or the restoration of function and the reintegration of the injured person back to pre-injury level of function. Conditioning, proper body mechanics and safety training, medical monitoring, pain management, self-management techniques and hands-on therapy, as appropriate, are all used to restore the injured patient’s neuromuscular, cardiovascular and behavioral capabilities.
