Home Exercises and Stretching
Our patients learn to perform home stretches and exercises to improve their overall fitness and health. Condition specific exercises and stretches are customized to each patient’s physical needs. Descriptive handouts are provided to facilitate ease of implementation. This is an essential component to wellness and remaining symptom free.
A series of exercises and stretches can be used to improve involuntary control of the muscles that provide stability to the spine. Unlike general exercise programs which focus on gross muscle tone and strength, spinal stabilization exercises are tailored to a specific patient’s needs and train the small, fine controlling muscles of the spine. Rehabilitating these muscles can restore optimal spinal function and reduce the risk of re-injury.
