Want to know the key to achieving a long, healthy and vibrant life? It’s exercise! Regular exercise has been scientifically shown to improve health by lowering blood cholesterol levels, strengthening the immune system, lowering body fat, increasing one’s sense of well-being, and increasing muscle strength, tone and function.
Chiropractors understand the importance of exercise and the essential role it plays in good health. We encourage our patients to participate in physical activities which promote cardiovascular health, and teach special exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problems.
It’s essential to perform therapeutic exercises to help the healing process following injury. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your treatment. When you become injured, not only can you suffer from skeletal misalignment, but your muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Your body can achieve and maintain balance and good health by taking part in specific therapeutic exercises and stretches for the neck, back and extremities.
Exercise provides many benefits before and after injury. Early on, exercise prevents muscle deterioration and promotes joint health. During the healing process and after, exercise increases strength, your sense of body position (known as proprioception), and stability to protect from new injuries and recurrences of past problems.
Exercise rehabilitation is also a vital regimen for those experiencing chronic disease or disabilities. Our rehab specialists work closely with patients to improve body function, health and quality of life through proper exercise and physical activity. We also help our patients strive to prevent new occurrences of injury, relapses or further progression of a condition.
