Stretching

Most can attest that tight muscles and tendons are painful and inhibit day to day activity. To help his patients move more freely, Dr. Dave provides a series of stretches before chiropractic adjustments. This ensures patients are limber, and joints are more easily manipulated into correct alignment.

The work of healing doesn’t stop at the office door, however. At the end of each appointment, patients are sent home with instructions on stretches they can do throughout the week. The goal is to help patients maintain long-term flexibility and avoid the problems that tightly contracted muscles can cause.

Therapeutic Exercise

Physical exercise has many benefits, including increased circulation, faster metabolism, reduced risk of illnesses (such as heart disease and diabetes), and improved mental health. Exercises such as those used in physical therapy help rebuild injured muscle tissue, strengthen and heal ligaments and tendons, and get patients back to living the way life is supposed to be lived.

Along with information on stretching, Dr. Dave instructs his patients on the best exercises they can do to feel better in every-day life. No matter whether patients suffer from mild pain or a major injury, he believes in the benefits of physical therapy for everyone. Patients can expect a custom plan targeting their specific needs, starting with gentle floor exercises. As the patient gets stronger, the exercises increase in intensity to match abilities. This continues until the patient is back to full strength.
