Therapeutic exercises are tailored exercises aimed at addressing specific issues. Depending on your chiropractic concerns, your chiropractor may recommend a set of exercises to alleviate discomfort. These exercises target enhancing flexibility, strength, and endurance relevant to your particular physical challenges.

The overarching goal of therapeutic exercise is to enhance, restore, and prevent the decline of physical function, contributing to overall health, fitness, and well-being. Additionally, therapeutic exercises seek to achieve various objectives, including:

  • Enhancing mobility
  • Loosening contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
  • Mobilizing joints
  • Enhancing circulation
  • Improving respiratory capacity
  • Enhancing coordination
  • Reducing stiffness
  • Improving balance

Therapeutic exercises are broadly categorized into three main types:

  1. Endurance training
  2. Resistance training
  3. Flexibility training

Irrespective of the exercise type prescribed for a specific condition, the ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to attain optimal physical fitness without resorting to more invasive interventions. These exercises can be performed at home, empowering you to enhance your quality of life.
