WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE
Specific exercises to help rehabilitate the spine or an extremity. It is a set of repetitive stretching, strengthening, or endurance maneuvers designed to develop weakened or injured muscle groups that support the spine.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The individule bones of the spine are held in place by muscles and ligaments. Proper motion and position of these bones are crucial for proper nervous system function, correct posture, and good health. Exercises and repeated maneuvers help repatern and condition theses connective tissues.
WHY IS THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE NEEDED
By the time many patients seek help, fibrotic scar tissue has changed the elasticity and strength of supporting muscles. A program of carefully designed stretches and exercises helps restore better tone to theses damaged tissues. Results take time so stick with it. Its an inexpensive and effective way to speed your recovery, stabilize your spine, and help prevent a relaspse.
