Rehabilitation Q & A

Hako-Med Electromedicine

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation, or rehabilitation therapy, refers to a group of treatments used to limit pain, improve mobility, and encourage recovery following an accident or injury. Rehabilitation is completely noninvasive. It uses light exercise, manual therapies, and range-of-motion techniques to encourage the body’s natural healing process. 

Are there different types of rehabilitation?

At Sound Integrated Medical Center, the team offers several types of rehabilitation, including:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is a type of rehabilitation used to treat mobility issues. It involves light exercise, stretching, and manual therapy to restore movement, range of motion, and flexibility to specific joints or the spine. Physical therapy isn’t a one-and-done type of treatment. It involves a series of regular appointments over the course of several weeks or months. 

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is a type of rehabilitation that involves your Sound Integrated Medical Center provider manually manipulating soft tissues, including your muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Massage therapy uses hands, fingers, and elbows to ease pressure, encourage circulation, and limit inflammation.

Hako-Med Electromedicine

Hako-Med Electromedicine, also known as horizontal therapy, is a type of rehabilitation that uses a series of electrodes to direct targeted bursts of electrical energy to injured parts of the body. The Hako-Med system enables your Sound Integrated Medical Center provider to develop custom treatment plans based on the areas of your body experiencing pain and inflammation. This rehabilitation method is excellent for people suffering from joint, back, and musculoskeletal pain. It’s entirely noninvasive and can provide quick, effective results.

What type of rehabilitation is right for me?

To determine the type of rehabilitation that’s right for you, make an appointment at Sound Integrated Medical Center. Following a physical exam, a discussion of your symptoms, and a review of your medical history, your provider can make recommendations that align with your individual needs.

Depending on the type of injury you experienced and the severity of your symptoms, you might benefit from one type of rehabilitation or a combination of several different treatments.
