Dupuytren’s Contracture Therapy

, ,

Therapy for Hand Pain Atlanta GADupuytren’s Contracture is a slow developing hand deformity that affects the layer of tissue under the skin of the palm. This can be a debilitating condition because it progresses in a manner that cannot be corrected. The tissues in the palm will eventually form into a thick cord that will pull one or two of the fingers into a permanently bent position. If you have ever been without the use of one or two of your fingers for even a short amount of time due to injury, then you understand the complications that the permanent loss of use can have on everyday activities. Sovereign Rehabilitation is the trusted provider in and around Atlanta, Georgia for comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy. We have certified hand therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists that specialize in helping patients with Dupuytren’s Contracture find relief from their symptoms and learn coping mechanisms to perform daily activities.

BPPV Treatment

, ,

Doctors that treat Vertigo Atlanta GABenign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a type of vertigo that is caused by a problem in the inner ear. Symptoms of BPPV are the feeling that you are spinning and/or that the world is spinning around you. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we are a provider of comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy with specialists who are specifically trained to help patients with balance and dizziness disorders such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. We understand how debilitating feelings of dizziness and spinning can be, affecting all areas of your life at any point during the day. By helping patients find relief from BPPV, we help them better function during the day – ultimately gaining a better quality of life.

Inside the inner ear, calcium stones are present to help you keep your balance. These stones are designed to move around when you turn or move your head, but inflammation or infection can stop these stones from moving. When the stones do not move with your own movement, the brain receives a false signal and causes vertigo. The feeling of dizziness is much more than the “light headed’ feeling that sometimes occurs when you stand up quickly. BPPV can be bad enough that it makes you feel nauseous and vomit, and also finding it hard to stand or walk without falling over. These severe symptoms can drastically affect your life, especially if you care for young children who need to be picked up, or if you are involved in a sporting even that requires quick, constant movement. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we deliver rehabilitation therapy that is specific to patients who suffer from BPPV.

Hip Surgery Recovery

, ,

Physical Therapy Clinic near Atlanta GARecovering from any type of surgery takes time and patience. When the hip has had surgery, whether to repair the joint or to fully replace the joint, the recovery time is often one of the longest surgical recoveries to endure. The hip joint receives a lot of wear and tear throughout life. Any time the leg or foot moves even the slightest amount, the hip joint is activated. Whether your surgery is minimally invasive or more complex, full recovery depends on how well you rehabilitate the joint. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we provide full rehabilitation services for those who have undergone hip surgery. Recovery times vary from person to person, but one thing is certain: without proper rehabilitation, a full and effective recovery is all but impossible.
