What is the difference between therapy and rehab?
The term “rehab,” or rehabilitation, is the process of helping a person back to their normal condition. The term is broad and can refer to a number of different treatments and programs such as helping a patient relearn daily living or speech skills after a stroke, or helping a patient regain their physical strength after an accident at work. “Therapy” often refers to physical therapy or other treatments that are types of rehabilitation.
Is physical therapy considered rehabilitation?
Yes, physical therapy is a type of rehabilitation, and it can be a component of a comprehensive plan for a patient’s rehabilitation, or it can be the only kind of rehab a patient needs.
In physical therapy and many other kinds of rehab, a professional will help a patient with their body strength and movement. This can be done to help a patient recover from an injury or from surgery, to alleviate pain, or to help a patient improve their mobility. Generally, rehab is tailored toward the individual, and it can combine exercises with pain-relieving techniques for comprehensive treatment. Patients with back pain, neck pain, bursitis, or another issue can benefit greatly from physical therapy, and the therapy is proven to work in many cases, so patients can be very confident that it will help them in their rehabilitation. You should be confident that physical therapy will help you!
