Rehabilitation Exercises: A Quick Guide
The primary goal of rehabilitation exercises is to reinforce chiropractic adjustments and maximize their beneficial effect on the entirety of the Neuromusculoskeletal system of the body. Such exercises should be performed within the patient’s functional range in order to improve their strength and stability. As part of your rehabilitation you may be advised to engage in a structured program that includes exercises designed to target the lower and upper extremities, shoulders and core.

Chiropractic Treatment can play an important role in helping patients regain normal, pain-free function in the wake of accident or injury. A fully qualified and experienced Chiropractor will help guide you along the path of full recovery, a path which may include:
- Flexion Exercises – This type of exercise will be recommended if the patient is most comfortable bending over. Flexion exercises may include lifting the knees to the chest, bending forward and/or pelvic tilting.
- Extension Exercises – Extension exercises are advised if the patient is pain-free during extension-biased activities. This type of exercise may include prone press-ups, standing extensions or progressive extensions utilizing pillows to gradually raise the chest from the floor.
- In addition your Chiropractor may recommend other exercises including trunk exercises, hamstring or adductors stretches or exercises aimed at promoting optimal proprioceptive activity.
