Comprehensive Rehabilitation

Spine-related conditions, whether due to injury, surgery, or chronic issues, can significantly impact an individual's mobility, function, and overall quality of life. Comprehensive rehabilitation programs tailored to spine conditions play a crucial role in restoring strength, flexibility, and functionality.

  • Chronic Back and Neck Pain: Management and rehabilitation for ongoing back and neck pain resulting from various causes, including degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, and muscle strain.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Rehabilitation for patients who have experienced spinal cord injuries, focusing on maximizing function and independence, managing complications, and improving overall quality of life.
  • Spinal Stenosis: Non-surgical management and post-surgical rehabilitation for patients with spinal stenosis to improve mobility, strength, and pain management.
  • Spondylolisthesis: Rehabilitation aimed at stabilizing the spine, improving pain, and enhancing function for individuals with spondylolisthesis.
  • Osteoporosis-Related Spine Issues: Managing and rehabilitating spinal fractures or weaknesses due to osteoporosis, focusing on pain relief, strengthening, and prevention of future fractures.
  • Sciatica and Radiculopathy: Rehabilitation for conditions causing sciatic pain and other forms of radiculopathy, with a focus on pain management, strengthening, and flexibility exercises.
  • Rehabilitation after Spinal Tumor Surgery: Providing care and rehabilitation for patients who have undergone surgery for spinal tumors, focusing on functional recovery and pain management.
  • Scoliosis in Adults and Adolescents: Offering specific rehabilitation programs for individuals with scoliosis, aimed at reducing pain, improving posture, and enhancing overall spinal alignment.

Common Procedures

The Spine Comprehensive Rehabilitation department typically employs a range of procedures and therapeutic interventions to aid in the recovery and management of various spinal conditions. Common procedures and therapies include:

  • Physical Therapy: Tailored exercises and stretches to improve flexibility, strength, endurance, and posture, crucial for patients recovering from spinal surgeries or suffering from chronic back pain.
  • Occupational Therapy: Focuses on improving daily functioning and independence, teaching patients techniques to manage daily activities without exacerbating spinal conditions.
  • Pain Management Programs: Utilizing various modalities like heat therapy, cold therapy, electrical stimulation (TENS), and ultrasound to manage pain.
  • Manual Therapy: Techniques like massage, mobilization, and manipulation to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and encourage blood flow.
  • Aquatic Therapy: Water-based exercises to allow for muscle strengthening and flexibility training with reduced impact on the spine.
  • Core Strengthening and Stability Training: Targeted exercises to strengthen the core muscles, which are vital for spinal support and stability.
  • Posture Education and Training: Educating patients on proper posture to minimize spinal strain and prevent future injuries or pain.
  • Ergonomic Assessments and Modifications: Providing recommendations for workplace and home environments to support spinal health and prevent strain.
  • Pain Coping Strategies: Teaching patients cognitive and behavioural techniques to manage chronic pain, including relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and stress management.
  • Spinal Bracing or Orthotic Support: Use of braces or supports to stabilize the spine, improve alignment, or relieve pain.
  • Neurological Rehabilitation: For patients with spinal cord injuries or neurological impairments, focusing on restoring function as much as possible.
  • Balance and Gait Training: Exercises to improve balance and walking, are particularly important for patients recovering from surgeries or those with neurological impairments.
  • Flexibility and Stretching Exercises: To improve range of motion and reduce stiffness.
