Why is Rehabilitation Important?
If you have a chronic illness or endure an injury, active rehabilitation is a necessary step to restore your body's strength, flexibility, endurance, power, and overall function, which is achieved through different personalized exercises and drills. Active rehabilitation is just as important as treatment for an injury or condition. Unfortunately, it often goes overlooked, which can lead to people having limited function and mobility in the affected area. At Q Factor Chiropractic, our team offers personalized rehabilitation treatment plans for individuals in need of specialized care following an illness or injury.

Am I A Candidate For Active Rehabilitation?
Anyone who has sustained an injury, is recovering from surgery, is experiencing age-related loss of mobility, or is dealing with chronic pain can be an excellent candidate for active rehabilitation. During your consultation at Q Factor Chiropractic, our experienced team will evaluate your medical history, current health, and mobility to ensure that there are no issues preventing you from enjoying the benefits of an active rehabilitation program. It is important to realize that typically, the sooner patients begin an active rehabilitation program after an injury or illness, the better the outcomes.
When Should I Start Rehab?
Rehabilitation exercises should begin as soon as possible after the initial inflammatory phase (72 hours) and should usually be done without any discomfort with a few rare exceptions. As you're recovering, it's important not to push yourself. This is because pain is the body's way of telling you to stop or slow down. If you don't listen to your body, you will heal and recover even more slowly. At Q Factor Chiropractic, we offer active rehabilitation in three phases:
- Phase 1: In the first stage, rehabilitation involves gentle exercise, allowing for the damaged tissue to heal. When this stage is rushed, it will result in improper healing and will leave the area prone to further injuries.
- Phase 2: Second stage rehabilitation involves progressively loading the muscles, tendons, bones, or ligaments to develop tensile strength, producing healed tissue that will be able to withstand the stresses and strains of everyday life and exercise.
- Phase 3: The final stage of rehabilitation is where the tissue adapts and is stressed using functional exercises and drills to ensure the body is ready to return to normal activities.
