Exercise therapy is a set of repetitive stretching and strengthening maneuvers that are designed to develop weakened or injured muscles that support the spine. Specific exercises can help rehabilitate and stabilize the spine.
HOW DOES EXERCISE THERAPY WORK?
Individual bones from the spine are held in place by muscles and ligaments. Proper position and motion of these bones are crucial for proper nervous system functions, correct posture, and good health. Repeated maneuvers and exercise can help condition and re-pattern these connective tissues.
WHY IS EXERCISE THERAPY NECESSARY?
By the time many patients seek professional help, the fibrotic scar tissue has changed the strength and elasticity or supporting muscles. Careful exercises and designed stretches help better restore tone to these damaged tissues.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM EXERCISE THERAPY?
Exercise therapy is effective at decreasing pain and improving function in adults with chronic low back pain and other injuries alike. Exercise Therapy is an effective and inexpensive way to speed up your recovery time and stabilize your spine while also helping prevent a relapse.
