What is Functional Rehabilitation?

Functional Rehab is a therapy that helps people regain function and movement after an injury. Its focus is on improving the quality of movement!

Functional Rehabilitation involves getting you stronger, especially where you need it and related to your injury. You'll be performing controlled movements in an area of dysfunction, in such a manner that the improvements in strength, conditioning, and coordination, directly correlate to what you need to move pain-free and get back to doing what you love.  We want you better than your pre-injury status.  It's for everyone of all ages and abilities here in Lehi!

We treat and rehab virtually all musculoskeletal conditions and have success in helping people get better where others haven't.  Sprain strains, Impingement, herniated discs, pre-surgical, post-surgical cases, generalized back pain, sports-related injuries, etc.  We will individually assess those needs and generate a plan with you on how to get you back to what you love and enjoy. 

You will be taught exercises in the office that you can easily do at home so that you can maintain your health after your injury has resolved.


Each exercise that we give you is targeted to your specific needs.

This helps you make the most of your valuable time and gets you back to 100% quickly.

Functional Rehabilitation is for anyone!

Whether you are young or old, a professional athlete or a casual runner, functional rehab can help you reach your goals. If you have recently suffered an injury or have an old chronic injury, functional rehab can help you get back to your previous condition. However, even if you have not been injured, functional rehabilitation can still help you improve your overall quality of life and wellness. We don't need the pain of an injury to train to avoid injuries in the future. Assessing your current movement patterns and working with you to correct any imbalances through rehab allows you to perform well and reduce your risk of injuries in the future.

As we age, we begin to experience changes in elasticity, flexibility, balance, and strength! The changes occur naturally, but we can do balance training, and strength and mobility exercises to counter this. This helps us to avoid injuries related to falls, do better at picking up items from the store without getting hurt or playing with our kids, etc. We routinely see remarkable improvements in our patient population with those that do their rehab exercises.

Pain is the last thing to show up and usually the first thing to go away! You need to recover from that injury and that starts with exercises and movement. Performance in life requires more than simple exercises. Let us help you build on a strong foundation and provide further abilities in strength and mobility through your rehabilitation process.
