Plus, chiropractors can make the most of your efforts to strengthen your body and improve your health by pairing rehabilitation services with other beneficial therapies and treatments.
The exercises you can perform at home will compliment the sessions you have in the office. You’ll receive guidance from a chiropractor about the techniques and amount of times you should be exercising each week. When designing an individualized rehabilitation plan for you, we’ll take into account your health and family history, the levels of pain you feel, past injuries, and other factors that can help determine the tools and exercises that will give you the best results and optimize your health.
Who should consider rehabilitation?
Aches and pains come in many different shapes and forms. There are some injuries and accidents that will require more extensive care, and then there are those that need attention, but will focus more on maintenance and prevention.
If you experience pain in your body (such as your neck, back, shoulder, or legs) on a regular basis, then you could be a good candidate for rehabilitation. Whether you received this pain due to years of repetitive motions at work or they are recently caused by a sudden accident, using the proper techniques while exercising can help relieve the pain and strengthen your spine.
Each person will differ in the number of treatments they’ll need to see results. If you have spent years working at a desk with poor posture or you’ve played a sport like tennis that requires the same motion to be used over and over, your recovery time may take a little longer. However, if you are working on prevention and maintenance of a past injury, or your pain is minor, then you’ll start reversing the effects using fewer sessions.
One important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t give up on your rehabilitation sessions just because you don’t see the results you want right away. It takes time to build strength, and this is true even when you’re perfectly healthy. Be patient during rehabilitation and enjoy the small victories you make throughout the process.
In the same vein, don’t stop the sessions just because you start to feel better. The goal is to optimize your health, so you gain strength and prevent the injury from coming back. Stay on track and continually communicate with your chiropractor as your body changes and you start to feel less pain.
How does rehabilitation help?
Rehabilitation through chiropractic care is effective because it combines the proper exercises and intensity, with the right tools and techniques, and it’s under the recommendation of a doctor. You’ll focus on exercises like stretching that help improve your range of motion and relieve tension that tight muscles can cause. You’ll hold these poses for a certain amount of time to ensure you get the full benefits. A chiropractor will guide you when using certain tools during the process such as foam rollers.
You’ll also focus on exercises that restore muscle balance and help you gain strength in areas that support the body. Strong muscles won’t add as much stress to the joints like weakened muscles can. You’ll also be spending time improving your joint mobility. When your joints have mobility, you’ll find your hips and spine move easier.
By taking the time to focus on the proper exercises, you’ll soon begin to notice results and your body getting stronger. We know that your day can get busy, but it’s important that you stay consistent. Your chiropractor will be there to help you stay accountable and to cheer you on as you progress. Be sure you pay attention and listen to your body when you do the exercises, and let your chiropractor know if anything feels awkward, or if you think you can advance to the next level.
