The main goal of rehabilitation is to improve your mobility and hone your independence in doing daily life activities following an illness, medical condition, surgery, or accident. At RMS Consultations here in Southfield, MI, we offer rehabilitation services specific to your recovery requirements. During your consultation with Dr. Antoine Geffrard, you will set meaningful and realistic rehab goals so that you can gradually maintain or achieve them safely.

How Long Will The Initial Consultation Take?

In general, a consultation here at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. To ensure a comprehensive and accurate consultation and accounting of your particular needs, you should bring your updated medical records. You don’t need to bring your official medical records if you can’t get ahold of them for some reason.

Just make sure to bring a list of all the medications, vitamins, supplements, and/or herbs that you are currently taking and include why you’re taking them. You will also need to bring a list of the dates and descriptions of your illness or injury, surgical procedures you’ve undergone, findings, complications (if any), and hospital confinements. Don’t worry if you fail to include everything on your lists. Dr. Antoine Geffrard will examine you and ask you specific questions so that he can form a more thorough account of your case.

What to Expect During The RMS Consultation

Your doctor will thoroughly evaluate your condition, expectations, and requirements and rules out severe medical conditions. This way, your doctor will have a clearer understanding of your current limitations and overall condition. This will help him develop a recovery treatment plan specific to your unique circumstances.

Next, your doctor will help you figure out your rehabilitation goals. Are you looking to regain the strength of an injured muscle, move around without gasping for breath, or manage chronic pain? Your doctor will work with you to identify achievable long and short-term goals. Throughout your recovery, your doctor might also tweak or modify your treatment plan and goals if needed.

Physical activity is likewise extremely important for mobility and overall health. However, you need to have a specific exercise plan that will help you recover safely and won’t aggravate your condition. To that end, your doctor will create an exercise plan that will take into account your physical limitations so you can avoid further injury and to help ensure that you can stick to it.

By creating a rehabilitation plan unique to your requirements and collaborating with you, you can rest easy knowing that you’re in the right hands. Call RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, at (248) 663-5353 for a consultation with Dr. Antoine Geffrard.

During your visit, you will learn strategies to help you manage your chronic health condition and live a healthier life.

2. We can help you create a healthy diet.

Between what you read in the news and hear on TV, eating right can seem like a challenge—but it doesn't have to be. During your visit, the doctor can help you understand your medical condition and how the foods you eat might affect it. We will work with you to create a healthy diet that has the nutrients needed to manage your condition. Healthy eating is one of the best things you can do to prevent and control health problems such as diabetes or heart disease.

3. We can help you reach your goal weight.

4. We can recommend alternative therapies.

Looking for alternative avenues to treat your condition and achieve wellness?

This field includes many forms of therapy, such as traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, ayurveda, and osteopathy. We can develop a personalized treatment plan to enhance healing and restore balance and wholeness in all aspects of your life.

5. We can educate you about medications.

Medicines help us live healthier and longer, but, mixing certain drugs or taking them the wrong way can be dangerous. You need to be careful with prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements to use them safely. If you have questions about your medicine, a consultation can answer how and when to take your medication, whether a medicine may change how another drug you are taking works, and describe any side effects you might experience.
