Are you looking for rehabilitative care after an injury? Exercises build strength that helps you recover and regain mobility. Chiropractic care can help relieve pain and improve your body's range of motion.
We at Back in Balance Wellness Center serves the residents of Ellsworth, ME, and Bangor, ME. Here's what you need to know about rehabilitative exercises and our care.
What Are Rehabilitative Exercises?
A chiropractor on our team will prescribe exercises to help you regain strength and mobility. The exercises will depend on the type of injury you have. For example, if you've hurt your back, the exercises will focus on strengthening your core muscles. These are the muscles in your abdomen and lower back that support your spine.
If you've had a shoulder injury, the exercises will focus on regaining the range of motion in your shoulder. The exercises may also focus on strengthening the muscles around your shoulder to support the joint.
Some exercises are meant to help with chronic conditions, like scoliosis. You may participate in exercises that help stretch and strengthen your spine and muscles. This can help alleviate pain and improve your posture.
Why Are Rehabilitative Exercises Important?
Rehabilitative exercises are an important part of your recovery because they help you regain strength and mobility. The exercises also help reduce the risk of further injury because you build balance in your muscle groups.
How Often Should I Do the Exercises?
You should do the exercises as often as prescribed by a chiropractor on our team. For example, you may be asked to do the exercises three times a week for six weeks. We will provide insight into how often you should return for additional treatment sessions as well.
Can You Combine Rehabilitative Exercises & Chiropractic Care?
Yes, you can combine rehabilitative exercises with chiropractic care. In fact, combining the two modalities can help speed up your recovery. You can also pair rehabilitative exercises with nutrition and lifestyle changes. Your treatment plan is focused on your needs, and it is customized for your injury or pain.
