At the Virginia Pain & Wellness Center, each patient receives a customized Physical Rehab program with the purpose of returning the patient back to normal human body movement patterns.

Psychical Therapy - Reston Virginia
As well as the traditional elements of physical therapy such as strength and flexibility, Virginia Pain & Wellness Center’s Physical Rehab program incorporates agility and proprioceptive and kinesthetic training, which enables the patient to participate at preinjury levels of activity while reducing the risk of recurrent injury through optimal biomechanical and neurophysiological function.

Our Physical Rehab program is designed to progress the patient from simple activities, such as walking or jogging, to more complex activities that require refined levels of proprioceptive acuity.

 

Physical Rehab Q&A

What to expect at the first visit:
The first appointment is scheduled as an initial comprehensive examination.  This typically takes between 30-45 minutes and the Doctor takes specific measurements based on the body region being evaluated.  After determining each patients’ strength, flexibility, joint mobility & muscular tension the Doctor then forms an individualized physical rehab plan of care, which includes supervised exercises to improve deficits found in the initial evaluation.
How long will Functional Rehab last?
Each person is different and each person has different healing times.  The good news is that conservative treatment, such as Physical Rehab often works very well, and many patients come to therapy to avoid surgery, taking medications for pain, and to improve their overall quality of life.  The typical protocol for physical rehab is a minimum of 4 weeks.  This is not a random number!  Research shows that strength gains from physical rehab typically take 6-8 weeks to begin to see a lasting change.  At 4 weeks, we reexamine the patient to see a change in the measurements and determine the best plan of care for each patient at that time based on each patients’ goals established their first visit.
What should I wear?
Physical Rehab does involve exercise, so it would be best to dress appropriately with comfortable shoes and clothes that allow for movement.  If you are coming from work, which many of our patients do, bring extra clothes and foot wear to change into if necessary.
What types of exercises will I be doing?
Most exercises are therapeutic in nature and do not involve excessive amounts of sweating or cardiovascular work.  Every person is different and the exercises are catered to each person’s specific areas of weakness or impaired mobility.  Exercises should be fatiguing in nature but should not lead to more pain!
