Functional exercise is an approach that works complementary to chiropractic care to assist with restricted range of motion to allow the body to develop efficient movement patterns. In addition to that, therapeutic exercise allows the patient to reduce their risk of further injury by restoring proper movement patterns. This type of therapy incorporates functional execises to help the patient regain their strength and endurance to prevent further injuries. It's not only about decreasing the pain, it's about fixing the source of the problem.
There is also a neurological benefit from the chiropractic care that can help the patient expedite the healing process when rehabilitation is applied to their treatment. This combination of treatments helps to ensure long-lasting results throughout and after a patients treatment.
