Recognized as a leading rehabilitation specialist in the La Jolla, CA, area, Dr. Kasendorf uses state-of-the-art rehabilitation techniques to help patients recover as fully and quickly as possible after injury or surgery so they can enjoy optimal health.
Osteopathic medicine uses gentle manipulation and evaluation of the musculoskeletal system to determine the source of pain and other symptoms, and to treat those symptoms using a “whole patient” approach. Osteopaths focus on improving the function of the musculoskeletal system to help alleviate symptoms that can affect many aspects of health and daily living.
Because it takes a whole body approach to treatment, osteopathy is ideally suited to rehabilitation after an injury or during the recovery phase following a surgical procedure. Dr. Kasendorf uses the most advanced techniques to tap into the body's natural healing processes, including osteopathic manipulations to relieve stress and release constrictions and impingements that may interfere with normal body functions and processes. Plus, because osteopathy is concerned not just with physical symptoms but also with psychosocial issues associated with recovery and rehabilitation, the techniques Dr. Kasendorf uses can also help alleviate stress and depression for better overall health and faster healing and recovery.
Many people who have experienced injuries may have weaknesses remaining after healing that can make them more prone to additional injury. Dr. Kasendorf can evaluate injury sites – even “old” ones – to develop a proactive approach for strengthening sites left weak or vulnerable following an injury. Following a complete evaluation, he may recommend exercise, gentle stretching, osteopathic manipulation or lifestyle changes to help you regain flexibility and balance as well as strength. Dr. Kasendorf understands every patient's rehabilitative needs can vary greatly, and he develops every rehabilitation program based on those unique and disparate needs for optimal results.
