Exercise therapy is a safe, effective method of treatment that uses a series of exercises to strengthen and correct irregularities in your body that cause pain. The goal of exercise therapy is to restore normal musculoskeletal function and reduce pain through light stretching, gait training, and physical therapy.
Exercise therapy also requires commitment. To achieve the best results, you must attend every appointment and follow your provider’s instructions, even if you feel weak or tired.
Anyone suffering from persistent joint, back, and neck pain or headaches and migraines can benefit from exercise therapy. Inflammation, irritation, and stiffness often develop due to poor posture or weak muscles that can be corrected through exercise therapy.
Exercise therapy uses targeted stretches and activities to strengthen these areas, improve your mobility, and increase your independence. You may also want to consider exercise therapy if you rely on painkillers to ease your symptoms. With the proper treatment plan, you can reduce your medication intake and trips to the doctor.
The team at Woudsma Chiropractic Associates offers two types of exercise therapy:
In-office exercise therapy involves working with your chiropractor one-on-one. In-office therapy is particularly beneficial for people suffering from chronic neck and back pain, as well as migraines. Depending on the source of your discomfort, your provider may recommend combining exercise therapy with electronic stimulation, supportive braces, or BioFreeze™ pain reliever.
Home exercise therapy includes a group of easy exercises you can perform in the comfort of your own home without the supervision of a medical professional. Simple, corrective exercises better align your spine and encourage healthy circulation throughout your entire body.
The only way to determine whether exercise therapy is right for you is to schedule an appointment with the team at Woudsma Chiropractic Associates. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, your chiropractor makes recommendations that align with your goals and situation.
