Rehabilitation Q & A

What is chiropractic rehabilitation?

Chiropractic rehabilitation is a nonsurgical approach to injury care and prevention. As an experienced chiropractor and acupuncturist, Dr. Arevlo takes a holistic approach to rehabilitation. He focuses on proper injury evaluation and noninvasive treatments to improve spinal function and reduce pain.


Dr. Arevalo uses hands-on manipulation to restore function to your damaged joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves and to prevent reinjury. These structures work together to allow movement, flexibility, and stability.

How can chiropractic care help my rehabilitation?

Chiropractic rehabilitation blends passive and active treatments to improve your musculoskeletal function. Dr. Arevalo recommends chiropractic rehabilitation if you experience the following conditions:


  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Pain from cancer treatment
  • Nerve pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Sports injury


The earlier you start rehabilitation, the more likely you are to recover fully from an injury or chronic pain condition.

What does rehabilitation include?

To create your individualized rehabilitation plan, Dr. Arevalo performs a complete physical evaluation that includes a head-to-toe exam and health history review. He may also order imaging scans, such as X-rays, ultrasounds, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or computed tomography (CT) scans to investigate your symptoms further.


Dr. Arevalo takes many factors into account when designing your treatment plan. Your age, health history, underlying conditions, fitness level, and the severity of your condition influence the treatments Dr. Arevalo recommends. Your personalized chiropractic rehabilitation plan may include:


  • Nutritional counseling
  • Stretches and exercise
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture


The length of your rehabilitation sessions and care plan depend on the severity of your injury and the progress you make.

Why might I need rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is an essential part of injury recovery. It may also help alleviate chronic pain and discomfort. Dr. Arevalo may recommend chiropractic rehabilitation if you:


  • Have recently undergone surgery
  • Have been experiencing chronic pain for longer than three to six months
  • Experience pain that interferes with your daily life
  • Struggle to sit or stand for long periods 
  • Have joint use
  • Have experienced a sports injury
  • Have been involved in a car accident
