Chiropractic Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises may be used to help strengthen injured or weakened areas of your body. Corrective exercises are often similar to exercises prescribed in physical therapy.


How Corrective Exercises Work

Our chiropractors are trained to look for the source of your pain and treat it effectively. In many cases, corrective exercises are used for this purpose. These exercises involve making precise movements and strengthening and stretching your muscles. They result in longer, more flexible muscles while helping to improve any imbalances that you may have in your body.

The reason why these exercises are effective is because they reverse the effects of having tight muscles on one side of your body and weak muscles on the other. This kind of imbalance can happen from performing the same physical movements repeatedly. When one side of the body is flexed and the other isn’t, it creates imbalances that not only cause pain, but can make you more susceptible to injuries.

Benefits of Corrective Exercises

One of the most significant benefits of performing corrective exercises is that it helps loosen up the muscles and connective tissues in your body. Often, these parts of the body are tight because of improper alignment and lack of flexibility. Our corrective exercises can help improve your flexibility and range of motion throughout your musculoskeletal system.

If you were recently in an accident, corrective exercises can improve your recovery process. We can recommend exercises that target specific parts of the body where pain and inflammation are occurring. Corrective exercises help relieve tension and improve blood flow to promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Patients often report experiencing reduced pain and improved mobility after their initial sessions.

Continuing the Recovery Process

Corrective exercises are also prescribed as a part of a physical therapy plan. This plan is important because it provides everyone with a broad overview of how someone is going to recover from an injury and experience pain relief. All of this can expedite someone’s road to recovery. While physical therapy and corrective exercises take some time to experience their full effects, the goal is to not only treat the injury but also to prevent one from happening in the future.
