Therapeutic exercises and stretching compliment your subluxation correction procedures and speed up your body's healing process. Dr. Robynn Poortvliet will help you design a prevention program and exercises to help prevent future problems and promote health, treatment, and rehabilitation. She may suggest strengthening exercises and stretches for patients with back, neck, and other body problems. When prescribed along with manipulation or other chiropractic care, these exercises can reduce pain, protect against new or recurring injuries, prevent muscle deterioration and promote strength, stability, and range of motion.
Our staff will ensure you are correctly performing your exercises and stretches so that you can do them in the comfort of your own home. It is important to keep up with your rehabilitation and corrective exercises and stretches - not only will you feel better, you can accelerate your healing process and prevent scar tissue from forming. Even after you heal, maintain a regular exercise and stretch program to help your mobility and flexibility and help protect yourself from new injuries.
