September is National Recovery month and we’re celebrating recoveries from all walks of life. Addiction, disease, physical rehabilitation and mental recovery deserves its recognition. The hardest part of any disease or accident is the recovery process after, and not enough credit is given to those that do go through intensive recovery the months following. This month is for them.Physical Rehabilitation
When most people think “recovery” their first thoughts normally wander to someone who has been in an accident and is participating in some type of physical therapy. Physical therapy can consist of anything from simple stretches to regular exercises to rebuild strength in deteriorated muscles. A recommended product for rebuilding arm strength is the UE Ranger, this system allows upper extremities such as forearms and shoulders to recover, it can be used with several different mounting stations such as a
Another aid for physical therapy is the UE Ranger Neuro Series designed with interchangeable hand supports and have optional wall or door mounting systems.
Shoulder injuries, like leg injuries, are some of the most common problems that most people have to overcome in the recovery process. Every Physical Therapist will agree that exercises, stretches, and general movement are all very helpful in the aid of rebuilding strength and muscle. It is important to continue those therapies as needed and it might even be beneficial to continue these after the initial recovery.Rehabilitation For Recovering Addicts
One of the most overlooked recoveries happen to be involved with addiction. A proven disease that many Americans battle every day, yet most don’t get the help they need because addiction is frowned upon. Rehabilitation from addiction includes more than therapy, it includes doctors, therapists, friends, family and many support groups. Bringing awareness to addiction isn’t the problem, but those who are aware don’t always see it as a disease. Everyone is worthy of recovery and the best thing we could possibly do for those struggling with recovery after addiction is to be supportive.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provides services for support groups and self-help groups. They offer guides and resources to 12-step programs and resources for support groups to make recovery easier. No one has to be alone in a time for recovery.
Whether it’s physical, mental, or addiction, recovering is never easy and constantly undervalued. To recover from any sort of ailment is a win and it’s time we treat it as one.
