Home Exercise and Stretching Programs Augment Chiropractic Treatments
Our goal at Grand Oak Healthcare is to treat present pain and musculoskeletal problems and prevent future ones. While the most common forms of treatment will likely include manual manipulation and physical therapy, custom-tailored patient exercise programs may be prescribed to help strengthen the muscles of the body in order to provide better skeletal support.
Graded activity programs (where the level of exercise is adjusted to the person’s current condition and abilities) have proven to benefit people with low back pain, and exercise regimens such as these are more effective when coupled with treatment by a healthcare professional.
Healing and Prevention Through Home Exercise and Stretching Programs
Problems within our neck, back, and hips are often caused by a weak core and/or spinal support muscles. If these muscles are not strengthened, the issue will persist, even with continual manipulation therapy.
We assess the state of the entire musculoskeletal system to determine the best course of treatment. Patients may be given programs for exercises and stretches that can be done at home, without the need for gym equipment. When done regularly, these exercises are designed to enhance chiropractor therapy by strengthening the area and correcting the problem. The combination of exercise and manipulation has proven to be beneficial for conditions such as neck pain.
