Botti Chiropractic & Wellness | Functional Rehabilitation in Frankfort, IL

Whether it be a stiff neck, frozen shoulder or a ligament tear, any muscle dysfunction can really bring your life to a standstill. While there are many surgical and invasive therapies that a patient can undergo to improve muscle function, not all of them work equally well – and some can have serious side-effects. This is when alternative treatments step in to save the day. In chiropractic care, there are many forms of treatments that are given to a patient to improve muscle and bone function, while alleviating pain or other issues.

We already know how physical therapy is a boon for patients suffering from different ailments. At Botti Chiropractic & Wellness, we offer a specialized form of treatment known as functional movement rehabilitation, which revolves around providing utmost care and enhancing a patient’s physical strength and agility. Truthfully, we cover a wide range of conditions at our chiropractic office in Frankfort, IL – and this is a popular treatment option.

What is Functional Rehabilitation?

Functional rehabilitation is a form of physical therapy in which patient performance is enhanced and evaluated using exercises that mimic daily life activities. This specialized therapy aims to help a patient gain mobility and return to their regular routine or sports regime with a flexible and agile body. Also, it helps with pain management.

To put it in simple words, it is a combination of physiotherapeutic modalities, physical therapy, lifestyle hacks and therapeutic exercises to get through the daily course of life.

Mostly, functional rehabilitation is used by athletes who want to enhance their performance or manage a previous injury so that they can perform to the best of their potential. Many athletes have claimed that functional rehab not only helped them become stronger and treated their muscle dysfunction, but it also helped in reducing the chances of being injured. Additionally, it helped them build endurance to be less prone to pain in the future.

At Botti Chiropractic & Wellness, we offer functional rehabilitation for each of our patients based on their needs and physical activity. So, the treatment plan for an athlete widely differs from a patient with a sedentary lifestyle.

What to Expect from Our Therapists at Botti Chiropractic & Wellness

The therapists at Botti Chiropractic & Wellness are experienced and trained to conduct activity analysis, which is the key concept of functional rehabilitation alongside the initial physical assessment. With this, they are able to accurately understand the activities and treatment type that a patient needs based on his day-to-day physical activity.

With a professional approach, we will first analyze a patient’s activities and examine them, in depth, before investigating the condition. It is only after this assessment and examination that tailored functional rehabilitation treatment is set out for a particular patient. It is worth noting that treatment and recommended exercises vary from one patient to another based on his general health and activity. In some cases, our team may suggest other treatment methods as well, including, but not limited to,

Treatment Phases at Botti Chiropractic & Wellness in Frankfort, IL

At our chiropractic office in Frankfort, IL, the functional rehabilitation treatment has three distinct phases. They are explained as follows:

  1. Reset: When a patient suffers from a sprain or a ligament tear, treating it involves resetting the entire system to bring it out of the dysfunctioning mode. Our therapists do not directly start with the exercises. Instead, they first conduct a functional assessment based on which a resetting strategy is utilized. The resetting may include techniques like soft-tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, etc.
  2. Reinforce: After the reset phase, we move to reinforcement or support to properly treat the dysfunction at its root. We use all the latest equipment and techniques in the reinforcement phase. Bracing, taping, dynamic and static stretches, orthotics are a few to name.
  3. Reload: Reloading is the final step of functional rehabilitation treatment, which involves implementing the exercises and teaching the body to develop a functional pattern to override the dysfunction. It is like reprogramming the body to run efficiently after being infected by malicious code.
