Being injured can be quite frustrating and leave people feeling helpless. Having a sudden limitation or loss of function can turn one’s world upside down by limiting their daily activities, causing disruption in their focus due to relentless pain, interfere with their sleep pattern, and complicate their personal or professional life. There is no question that injuries leave many in a state of despair. Once the shock of the initial injury has subsided people are often left with many questions and wondering what to do next.
When should you start the rehab process?
It is important to start the Albuquerque injury rehabilitation process at the earliest opportunity one can, in order to ensure as much strength and function as possible is regained. This doesn't mean that if the injury is older that all hope is lost, frequently there is much that can be done to help people find relief and regain as much function as possible.
