Chiropractors in Orlando FL Are Experts in Healing Your Body
We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These rehabilitation exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health. Through our initial consultation with an experienced Orlando chiropractor, we will create a personalized program that will aid in getting your body back on track.
Why Is Chiropractic Care Beneficial For Injury Rehabilitation?
Although rehabilitation exercises serve as an important role in managing your chiropractic and overall good health, without normal spinal function, rehabilitation simply adds stress to an already improperly functioning spinal column. If you’ve even been in an accident or injured yourself due to other circumstances, it is normal to have muscle stiffness and soreness. But, some people also experience neck pain and headaches due to whiplash or restricted mobility because of the injury. Medication can help make the pain go away, but it doesn’t address it from the root. Chiropractic care does. Chiropractic care helps bring joint functionality back to your body.
What Should I Expect During The Treatment Process?
The base for injury rehabilitation is chiropractic adjustments. For instance, if your cervical spine is out of alignment because of a whiplash injury, it might compress nerves and muscles near it. This will trigger pain and restrict mobility.
Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way of bringing proper alignment back to the spine. We may also add complementary therapies like physical therapy to help your muscles with stiffness and soreness.
Are Exercises Involved in Rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation of the neck and back should be about redeveloping the balance between the muscles affected by the injury. Sometimes the exercises seem pretty easy because we aren’t trying to “bulk up” the muscles. We just want to re-set the balance.
In the low back especially, exercises are aimed at teaching the muscles to stabilize the spine.
Is It Better To Use Heat Or Ice For An Acute Injury?
Mauricio Chiropractic recommends rest, ice, compression, and elevation. So we definitely think it’s better to ice an acute injury as soon as you get injured. When it is used appropriately, your discomfort should be minimized and your recovery time shortened.
I was very hesitant to do rehabilitation therapy because of the high level of my pain. I am so glad I tried, it has helped me beyond what I believed it would. The pain is nearly gone and this has made me a true believer in therapy. The team provided me within my own rehabilitation program and I go in for scheduled check-ups to make sure I’m staying on track. They are so friendly here, I look forward to it all the time.
