Regular exercise is a key component to your long term health and well being.
Part of your chiropractic treatment at the Kos Chiropractic Centre will include specific exercises to strengthen muscles and provide stability to your spine.
Specific exercises are provided to accomplish these goals:
- Improve strength
- Improve flexibility
- Improve endurance
- Improve balance (proprioception)
- Improve stability of unstable spinal tissues
It is important for you to follow the exercise routine prescribed by the doctors, as it will speed your recovery time, strengthen your tissues and improve your sense of well being.
Interestingly and frequently, patients are merely given a generic list of exercises by their physician which generally does not speak to the specifics of a patient’s particular condition. An improperly structured exercise program can strengthen the wrong tissues, aggravate conditions and frustrate recovery.
The doctors will prescribe a few specific exercises for your condition because the performance of a few exercises improves your compliance, improves outcomes and ensures better recovery times.
