Therapeutic Exercises at a Chiropractor in Lithonia
If you were in a workplace accident, a slip, and fall, an auto accident, or any other incident, you’re probably dealing with a lot of pain. Over time, that pain hasn’t gone away, but only gotten worse.
You may be thinking of getting surgery. Instead of that, though, why not see a chiropractor for therapeutic exercise first? You don’t have anything to lose, and you just may find that your pain disappears.
What Is Therapeutic Exercise?
When your mind goes to the word “exercise”, you probably consider what you do at the gym or during a yoga session. Therapeutic exercise isn’t quite like that. You’ll work with a chiropractor the whole time under their supervision.
Throughout these sessions, you’re rebuilding endurance, strength, and flexibility to the damaged part of the body affected by injury or the medical condition.
Therapeutic exercise sessions don’t go on indefinitely. Once your chiropractor feels like you can move and use the affected body part without pain (or with considerably less pain), the therapeutic exercises will come to an end.
Physical Therapy Exercises Your Chiropractor May Recommend
So which physical therapy exercises should you expect when you see your chiropractor for exercise therapy? It depends, but here are several examples of what you may do:
- Circulatory exercises or breathing exercises that target a certain body part
- Relaxation exercises that reduce stress
- Coordination and balance exercises that can rebuild these two areas after an injury
- Postural exercises that reduce spinal and neck pain from postural issues and spinal misalignments
- Muscle performance exercises that rebuild the injured muscles
- Range of motion exercises, including active-assisted, active, and passive exercises with your chiropractor that is centered on the soft tissue and joints
