Here at Dr. Jill Chiropractic, we recommend corrective exercises to assist you with any pain that you may be experiencing.
Corrective exercises can help reduce pain and improve stability. The may consist of postural, stretching or strengthening exercises to improve the motor control function of your body. Most of these exercises are able to be performed in the comfort of your own home. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles or connective tissues that are strained or torn can also cause pain.
There are also other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. These pains are caused by muscles and tissues that are not properly aligned. Over time, this can cause injury. Feeling aligned will help your body achieve balance and true health.
Initial exercises prescribed during the acute stage may be designed to reduce pain and/or find a position of relief. These may include postural exercises and static stretches. Then exercises may progress to more active stretching aerobic and strengthening plans. It is important to do each rehabilitation exercise regularly. Strengthening weak areas and regaining lost strength will have you well on your way to feeling better.
These plans are all customized for your mobility level and pain level. Being able to implement and execute the exercises properly is very important to your entire healing process.
