Exercise rehabilitation is extremely important when you are recovering from an injury, optimizing your performance, or improving your posture. At Definitive Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, you will learn an exercise program specifically designed for your body to complement your treatment.
Whether you are recovering from an injury or are utilizing Chiropractic care for overall wellness, the highest quality research concludes that exercise prescription is essential. Most injuries or chronic dysfunction is due to tension, weakness and imbalances in the body and can lead to re-injury and chronic problems.
Rehabilitation exercises can include stretches for your tight muscles or strengthening exercises for the weak muscles. Your chiropractor will identify these areas for you so that we can target the specific areas that are issues for your body. With exercise rehabilitation in conjunction with chiropractic care, we can correct the imbalances in the body and prevent re-injury in the future.
Sport-specific exercise rehabilitation can optimize your performance and protect you from injury. Exercise is also integral during pregnancy when your body is accommodating to support changing loads, and preparing for different bending, lifting and carrying activities in the future. Another example is asking your body to maintain a certain position for an extended period of time, such as while you are sitting at a desk; you need to make sure your muscles are conditioned for that task.
