Post-Injury Rehabilitation

Post-injury rehabilitation is a slow and steady procedure of recovery. Rehabilitation helps patients to regain strength, move again, relearn skills, and learn new ways. There are two types of rehabilitation - inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. This procedure aims to support the patient in leading a good life. A life where one doesn’t have to rely on anybody and can take charge by themselves. 

Principles of Post-injury Rehabilitation

There are generally seven stages of post-injury rehabilitation. Remembered through mnemonic, these principles stand by ATC IS IT. Below is a brief description of the individual tenets:

  • A- Avoid Aggravation: It is crucial not to annoy the injury while undergoing the rehabilitation procedure. Therapeutic exercises done by professionals and administered correctly can exacerbate the damage. 
  • T- Timing: The therapeutic exercise session of the rehabilitation program must begin without any delay. The sooner one starts with their practices, the faster they can get back to their old lifestyle. 
  • C- Compliance: It is impossible to turn the program into a success if the patient is not compliant. The patient must be aware of the entire idea and goals of the program. It is the former idea and understanding that works as a motivating factor for the patients.
  • I- Individualization: Each individual responds variedly to a particular rehabilitation schedule. The program must get planned as per the patient’s condition and their reaction to specific medications.
  • S- Specific Sequencing: Every exercise must follow a particular sequence of events. The series must fulfill the requirements of the patient. And it must be determined by their physiological healing response. 
  • I- Intensity: The intensity range of the exercise must intend to challenge the patients and their injured area. But special care needs to be taken so that it doesn’t cause aggravation.
  • T- Total Patient: It is crucial to keep the unaffected areas stay as it is. This defines that the cardiovascular system must remain at a pre-injury level. Keeping the uninvolved sections at their peak along with the injured area benefits the patient psychologically and physically.
