Common Questions about Rehab

Without some form of active care or rehabilitation, recovery from an injury or a long standing spinal problem can take longer to achieve. Overlooking the importance of improved range of motion and muscle strength can result in a relapse, with your original health problem returning again and again.

Active Care for more complete recovery

Chiropractic rehabilitation involves the restoration of proper joint function of the spine or extremities, and the strengthening of support muscles and soft tissues. This will usually involve specific spinal or other joint adjustments, combined with a program of strengthening, resistance training, and exercises to improve muscle tone and coordination.

Some patients receive a set of simple exercises or “maneuvers” they can do at home. Other types of injuries will require the use of specialized equipment to isolate and strengthen specific anatomical regions and areas of the spine.

Ask your Armitage clinic specialist for ways you can speed the healing process and strengthen the supporting soft tissues of your spine and body through specialized active rehabilitation.
