Wellness Chiropractic Center Offers Corrective Exercises For Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic uses a variety of methods to improve musculoskeletal function after an injury or illness. Corrective exercises can be critical in strengthening supporting muscles, so the spine and related structures can function together as designed. At Wellness Chiropractic Center in Watertown, WI, we can help strengthen your body to reduce discomfort from problem conditions.
What Are Corrective Exercises?
Corrective exercises are specialized movements used to target certain muscle groups. These exercises are designed to increase strength and flexibility in muscles that support areas of the body that are often subject to overuse and misuse, such as the lower back, shoulder, neck and other areas.
Increasing the strength in these muscles assist in supporting normal movement, so that individuals can enjoy relief from pain and better physical function. Your chiropractor will determine the best type of exercises you need to improve comfort and movement in specific areas of your body.
How Corrective Exercise Can Help Improve Function
Many of the misalignments of the spine and joints that occur are often a result of the way we ordinarily use our bodies throughout the way. Poor movement can put pressure on muscles and nerves, leading to pain, stiffness and poor flexibility. Sitting a certain way, standing for hours or walking with poor alignment can lead to continuous pain. Corrective exercises help to undue these bad habits by strengthening muscles in new ways. As a result, you are able to walk and move with less stress and greater comfort.
Types of Exercise That May Be Recommended
Exercise helps to increase blood flow through the body, carrying oxygen and important nutrients to affected areas for faster healing. Your chiropractor may give you stretching exercises to gradually improve the condition of your supporting muscles. As you progress, you may receive more advanced exercises to increase strength and flexibility. Balance exercises can also be a good way to increase your ability to move more efficiently, reduce pain and avoid re-injury. These movements can help to improve posture, so muscles and nerves are not kept under continuous pressure.
