Corrective Exercises and Chiropractic Care
When you're dealing with joint, bone, or muscle pain, it may seem counterintuitive to fix the problem with exercise. However, corrective exercises can be an incredibly powerful, medication-free route to helping you find lasting relief from pain. Our chiropractor at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Lifecenter, PLLC in Livonia is experienced in helping patients through a chiropractic care plan, including corrective exercises, to start the journey towards a pain free life.
What Are Corrective
Often, the aches and pains that our bodies experience are related to muscular imbalances. We often don't notice that we tend to favor one side during daily activities. Muscular imbalances are especially common in people who carry heavy bags around, or spend much of their time picking up children. When we constantly favor one side of the body, that side becomes strong. This can cause the stronger muscles to create a shift in joints and tendons, which can result in pain.
Corrective exercises work to put the body back into alignment by strengthening and stretching areas that have been pulled or twisted out of their normal place. Corrective exercises are especially helpful for pregnant women. A rapidly growing belly can cause the back and hips to adjust in ways that the body isn't used to, resulting in back pain that often lasts long after the baby is born.
Corrective exercises can include a wide variety of different modalities, including stretches, strength exercises, and assisted stretching. Our chiropractor will work with you to create a plan for corrective exercises. You'll learn how to do the exercises at home, so you can make progress between your chiropractic appointments.
Why Do I Need a Chiropractor to Teach Me Corrective Exercises?
It's important to have a chiropractic professional assess your need for corrective exercises. In order to correctly prescribe corrective exercise, it's necessary to have a deep understanding of how different areas of the body relate to one another. Our chiropractor will talk with you about different symptoms you've been experiencing, injuries you've had, and how much time you're able to dedicate each day to corrective exercise. Together, you'll create a plan for helping to restore your body to its natural pain free state. At your appointments, you'll revisit the corrective exercise plan, making adjustments when necessary.
