Q: What is Therapeutic Exercise?
A: Therapeutic Exercise is a set of repetitive stretching, strengthening, or endurance maneuvers designed to develop weakened or injured muscle groups that support the spine. Specific exercises can even rehabilitate the spine.
Q: How does Therapeutic Exercise work?
A: The individual 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 repattern and condition these connective tissues.
Q: How long can results take?
A: Results take time. Therapeutic Exercise is an inexpensive and effective way to speed your recovery, stabilize your spine, and help prevent a relapse.
Q: Why is Therapeutic Exercise used?
A: By the time many patients seek professional 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 these damaged tissues.
