Exercise Therapy

Exercise therapy is a part of chiropractic care that focuses on helping the body function at a higher level of efficiency. Exercise is important for helping all body systems function optimally while preventing injury and deterioration. Exercise therapy may help improve flexibility, strength, endurance, and posture. Chiropractic exercise not only focuses on the back, but on other muscle groups and the body as a whole. Exercise and chiropractic adjustments may be used together to increase the effectiveness of treatment.

Chiropractic exercise may help reduce back pain and improve function. Emphasis is placed on strengthening the back extensor muscles. Researchers have found that exercise therapy combined with spinal adjustments is more effective than just exercise or spinal adjustments alone.

In addition to the back, exercise therapy may be aimed at particular muscle groups or the whole body. Strength training, aerobic exercise, and stretching may comprise a whole body program. Various types of yoga may be used to improve joint health, proper breathing, and relaxation.
