What are the benefits of rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation can help decrease pain and improve your physical function by:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Improving muscle contraction and coordination
  • Strengthening and stretching muscles
  • Improving posture and balance

Since rehabilitation sessions are personalized, Dr. Buberman can work with you on your own unique issues in order to help you recover as quickly as possible.

What can I expect during a rehab session?

Arrive for your rehab session wearing athletic clothing and bring a towel and water bottle with you. Dr. Buberman begins your visit with therapies to prepare your muscles and joints for treatment, including heat therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, and soft tissue therapy. Once you’re warmed up, Dr. Buberman takes you through a series of exercises to target the muscles and joints that aren’t functioning properly.

Exercises may be performed using your own body weight, resistance bands, or weights. After your exercise session is complete, Dr. Buberman shows you different stretches to perform — which can also be done at home — to relax the muscles you’ve just worked out. Additional cool-down therapies may be included, such as cold therapy or additional soft tissue therapy to relieve pain and inflammation.
