The prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients with limitation of function resulting from any disease or injury.
Rehabilitation is the specialty that emphasizes prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patients with limitation of function resulting from any disease or injury. The rehabilitation specialist is uniquely qualified to treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions through a holistic and balanced combination of therapy, exercise and manual medicine procedures.
The Goal of Rehabilitation
The goal of rehabilitation is quite simply the restoration of function. What that means to you is that we focus on the things that your pain or injury prevents you from performing. We then design a treatment program to regain those functions. For examples; if your lower back pain prevents you from walking, we will treat your lower back pain and work on regaining your ability to walk; if your shoulder injury prevents you from reaching, we will focus on regaining range of motion and shoulder strength.
Rehabilitation is the quality-of life healthcare specialty. Dr. Cohen is a Board certified Diplomate in Rehabilitation. He is recertified every year.
