Rehabilitation Exercises/Stretches

Rehabilitation exercises/stretches are targeted movements and activities prescribed by chiropractors to aid patients in recovering from injuries, alleviating pain, and enhancing mobility and function. These exercises are generally low impact exercises that avoid placing excessive stress on the body. They emphasize strengthening, stretching, and stabilizing the musculoskeletal system.

How do rehabilitation exercises support chiropractic adjustments?

Rehabilitation exercises work alongside chiropractic adjustments by enhancing the effects of the adjustments. While adjustments improve joint mobility and reduce nerve interference, exercises strengthen the muscles around the joints, increase flexibility, and promote optimal movement patterns. This synergy helps maintain the benefits of adjustments and can reduce the risk of future injuries.
