Your body is made up of many complex components, which is why your chiropractic treatment plan will include a variety of options that are just as complex. The goal of chiropractic care is to strengthen your muscles so they can perform without putting more stress and pressure on other areas of the body. Our team at Darin Chiropractic provides chiropractic care for residents in and around Granite City, IL. Our customized treatment plans combine multiple treatment modalities. One of these modalities is corrective exercises that can help ease neck pain, back pain, and other injuries.
What Are Corrective Exercises?
Corrective exercises could be a part of your treatment plan. If so, you will leave your appointment with a list of exercises to perform at home. We will teach you how to perform these exercises at our office so that you know you are doing them safely. This ensures that you see progress at home as well as during your chiropractic appointments. The types of exercises you do will depend on the type of pain you are experiencing. The exercises help you to build function and restore balance.
These exercises help you correct muscular imbalances while building endurance and cardiovascular strength. When you build strength and stability, you reduce your risk of injury. Corrective exercises help you build muscle so that your body can carry its own weight effectively. You do not have to suffer from pain because one side of your body is forced to carry the load of the other.
Stretching helps you build flexibility in your muscles, joints, and other soft tissues. This also reduces your risk of injury and your risk of re-injury. Dr. Darin will give you some stretches you can perform safely at home. You can also use tools that help you stretch your muscles so that they are lengthened and less prone to injury.
Change Begins Today
Corrective exercise programs start small, but you will see long-lasting changes even with just a few steps each day. If you continue to work your muscles daily, you will see lasting changes that help align your body and build strength to help you avoid pain and injuries.
