What is Chiropractic Rehabilitation?
Chiropractic rehabilitation is the process we take patients through to help them get stronger, more limber and in proper alignment over the long-term. Much like physical therapy, rehab is made up of exercises specific to your injury. After a careful examination to determine the nature of your injury, we will offer you one or more treatment options that we think will best help you. Rehab is often one of the things we offer because we have seen it help patients heal time and time again.
Rehab can be challenging because it requires you to push yourself. The exercises shouldn’t be painful, but they may be difficult at first as your body is not used to them. But over a short period of time, you will get stronger, more flexible and more able to do the exercises in proper form. It can also be quite motivating to see your pain level start to improve and your mobility increase.
What to Expect in a Rehab Session
Your rehab session will be guided by the chiropractor, who is focused on helping you gain the benefits of rehab through steady progress. Your chiropractor will watch you carefully to determine how hard you can push yourself. Your first rehab session will focus on teaching you the correct way to do the exercises, while subsequent sessions will focus on increasing your abilities as your body grows more accustomed to the movements.
Your session may include:
- Foam Rolling - Rolling your muscles over a foam roller, a long stiff tube, helps to elongate tight muscles while working out knots and painful areas.
- Stretching - Stretching exercises are also designed to release tight muscles. Sometimes muscles need to be relaxed through foam rolling before stretching is beneficial.
- Strengthening Exercises - Your chiropractor may ask you to do various strengthening exercises to improve your posture, balance, etc. Sometimes strengthening weak areas is necessary to support injuries and avoid injuries in the future.
