Therapeutic exercises are intended to help improve physical function. Your chiropractor may consider recommendations to assist with flexibility, strength, and endurance. Exercise can also enhance overall health, fitness, and sense of well-being.
Objectives of therapeutic exercise can include:
- Increasing mobility
- Releasing contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
- Improving circulation
- Enhancing respiratory capacity
- Promoting coordination
- Reducing rigidity
- Improving balance
If recommended, the doctor will review what exercises you can work on at home to assist with care objectives and overall healthy function.
