Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Many people are not familiar with chiropractic rehabilitation. Here, chiropractors combine various treatments with spinal manipulation. It encourages self-massage. The aim is to decrease or end the pain. If you want to know what chiropractic rehabilitation is, here are the details.


Most people skip stretching during workouts. They end up hurting themselves because of this. That is why chiropractors want to teach patients about stretching.

Physical Rehabilitation

Doing so will allow patients to get the most out of exercises. Chiropractic rehabilitation also concentrates on stretching muscle groups. It may take one to two minutes of stretching to lengthen and relax the muscles. The process will combine therapeutic tools and stretching exercises. This activity is more effective with relaxed muscles.

Joint mobility exercises

Joints can help perform different types of movement. Pain is not a normal part of this. Performing joint mobility exercises can improve the patient’s range of motion. It can reduce the patient’s risk for possible injuries as well. The chiropractor can add these techniques to chiropractic rehabilitation.

Advanced stretching is like performing yoga poses. The chiropractor will tell the patient which poses can help the patient most. Using therapeutic tools for joint mobility is easy to do. Placing a massage ball or foam roller on the floor is a start. The patient can then position on it to place the tool between spinal joints. Performing these exercises is possible with either irritated or healthy joints.

Strengthening exercises

Strong muscles provide good structural support. Building up muscles is a good way to relieve the stress from different weight-bearing joints. Bulking up specific muscle groups can ease the pressure and pain in these areas. Strengthening exercises can help chiropractic rehabilitation.

Massage balls and foam rollers

These are valuable tools in chiropractic rehabilitation. Patients can use them to self-massage different areas of the body. Foam rollers and massage balls are easy to use. Targeting tight areas will not be a problem for patients, even on their own. Chiropractors would recommend treatment with these tools every day. There is a thin layer of tissue between the muscles and skin. It tightens like the muscles. It can also experience pain or even tear. Massage balls and foam rollers can loosen this tissue layer. They can help the patient perform independent exercises without any issue.

Postural Correction Exercises

Posture is a term that refers to the position we maintain our bodies while standing, lying down, or sitting. A good or healthy posture involves correct body part alignment to resist gravity with the appropriate muscle tension level. Poor alignment will increase the strain on your muscle and joints. The strain can lead to various issues, including back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and more. A good posture not only reduces pain and injury, but it also projects confidence, makes you feel energetic, and look great. Your posture arises from life-long habits. Therefore, it can take some time to correct your posture. Various factors can affect your posture. For example, wearing heels, pregnancy, lifting heavy objects, obesity, and more. Postural correction involves changing habits and teaching your body to appropriate motor patterns.

What Is Postural Correction Therapy?

Postural correction therapy is the treatment approach where our team helps you to correct your posture. The first step of postural correction therapy is a postural assessment to identify poor postural habits and how you can correct them. Your chiropractor identifies how your current posture affects your body and will recommend appropriate posture correction exercises. Moreover, a study published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science shows that postural correction exercises can alleviate back pain and shoulder pain. We will also help you to develop consciousness of your habits that lead to poor posture. If you do not have a severe case of poor posture, we focus on improving your balance, strengthening your muscles, and correcting how you stand, sit, and walk. In some cases, we could recommend a support device or brace that will help you to correct your posture. Get evaluated today for your postural complaints.
