Corrective Exercises - Chiropractic Care, Ltd.
At Chiropractic Care, we will customize an exercise program to meet your specific needs. Pinched nerves can cause muscle weakness and even a decrease in your sense of balance. Whether your condition is lower back or neck pain, a slipped disc, rotator cuff syndrome or ankle sprain, exercises to strengthen the appropriate muscles is essential to maintain your progress and prevent future injuries.
Exercises to strengthen the muscles that maintain correct posture may be an important part of your care. Good posture helps maintain spinal alignment and decreases the muscle tightness that occurs when these muscles are forced to work too hard. Good posture can also help prevent premature spinal degeneration. Strengthening the core muscles of the back and abdomen is extremely important to help support and protect the lower back.
In many cases the doctor will prescribe and demonstrate gentle stretches for you to perform at home. If your condition warrants, our Certified Personal Trainers may also provide one-on-one exercise instruction.
At both of our offices, we provide Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) performed by a certified specialist. MAT is a form of manual therapy that uses a systemic approach to help identify and treat muscular imbalances that relate to pain, injury, weakness and inhibited muscles. When a muscle becomes weak it loses neurological input to the central nervous system resulting in a decrease of joint stability. MAT was designed to identify and correct instability and help restore normal ranges of motion.
