Why include Rehabilitation?
Helping patients attain their best level of health and mobility is our constant goal. Therefore, just getting you out of pain is only one step to the complete care you should be aiming for. We are interested in your long-term health and wellness, not just a quick fix to mask back or neck pain.
When used in conjunction with chiropractic care, patients receiving rehabilitation care have faster and more long-term results. This is an important step in getting you to true wellness and allowing you to love a healthy, active lifestyle. If chiropractic care has gotten you out of pain, you should have no excuse to not want to exercise.
Benefits of rehabilitation include:
- Improve joint and muscle function
- Aid in balance and coordination
- Preventing new injuries from occurring
- Stabilize your spinal adjustments
- Increase pain-free range of motion
- Increased flexibility
We carefully exercise the injured joint under a carefully amount of stress to rehabilitate the soft tissue and muscles around the injured area. These exercises may include resistance training, core strengthening, and stabilizer exercises.
