Rehab Therapists

We teach our patients special exercises designed specifically for them; In order to help strengthen and correct their own unique issues.  These exercises encourage a restorative functional movement pattern to prevent pain and increase performance. The exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. 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.  Our Certified Athletic Trainers can develop an entire training program for you to do in office so you can continue on your own.
