Eldoa & Rehabilitation

ELDOA & REHABILITATION

Proper rehabilitation after a traumatic injury is a vital part of the healing process. It particularly makes the difference between returning to pre-injury status, having limited range of motion, or not being able to move at all. As a result, Dr. Paul J. Gordon and his rehab team offer recovery services for nearly every condition.

In order to meet the needs of every patient, we promote both active and passive physical therapy services. With such a wide array of recovery options, our program has become well known for its uniqueness. Neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons throughout New Orleans thus regularly refer patients to our clinic for evaluation and treatment.

In addition, our rehab staff is certified in ELDOA, a stretching and strengthening technique used to target a specific joint for spinal decompression and pain relief.  Our rehab manager is a C.H.E.K. certified practitioner and rehabilitation specialist.  More specifically, he specializes in Corrective Exercise and High-performance Kinesiology. He is also trained in assessment techniques and individualized application of exercise and exercise programs, particularly in complex orthopedic conditions.

After our doctor recommends rehabilitative care to a patient, the doctor and rehab manager will create a program fit for the patient’s needs. A rehab program will typically integrate various modalities, including traditional exercises, mind-body fitness, soft-tissues therapies, and orthopedic rehabilitation. Throughout the entirety of the treatment program, our doctors will fully assess the patient’s progress.

Overall, the benefits afforded by our rehab team are vast:

  • Restoration of function following injury or illness
  • Return to sports recreation and work
  • Improved health, strength, movement and safety
  • Muscle strengthening & coordination
  • Improved range of motion
  • Pain reduction
  • Edema (swelling) reduction
  • Improved balance and vestibular function
  • Wellness & return to recreational activities
