Rehabilitation Q & A

What is chiropractic rehabilitation?

Chiropractic rehabilitation uses specific exercises and techniques to effectively manage your spinal adjustments, leading to improved mobility, reduced pain, and enhanced healing.

When rehabilitation is used effectively, your body sustains stronger healing, and the risk of relapse decreases. By using spinal manipulation hand and in hand with targeted exercises, Dr. Jake uses rehabilitation to improve the functioning of your spine to help you heal.

After performing spinal adjustments, Dr. Jake may suggest rehabilitation exercises for you to do between appointments. Designed to build strength and improve flexibility, he may suggest:

  • Foam rolling exercises
  • Stretching exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Joint mobility exercises

By completing these at-home rehabilitation exercises in conjunction with chiropractic care, your spinal adjustments last longer and stabilize more.

What is pre-adjustment rehabilitation?

Dr. Jake offers pre-adjustment rehabilitation to make your chiropractic adjustment more effective. Using standing cervical traction, he warms up the muscles and ligaments in your neck and back, allowing them to stretch and be more receptive to the spinal adjustment. That reduces stress on the neck and helps to hydrate the spine’s discs, enhancing their healing ability.

Dr. Jake may also suggest using a wobble disc to improve range of motion before alignment. It improves your spine’s movement and allows it to be more accepting of Dr. Jake’s adjustments.

The wobble disc also stimulates a healing response from your body and can help with rehabilitation from:

  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle strains
  • Nerve pain
  • Spinal abnormalities

What is post-adjustment rehabilitation?

Dr. Jake offers patients post-adjustment rehabilitation, to help your body sustain the spinal adjustment as long as possible.

By standing on a vibrating plate, weak postural muscles are strengthened, leading to a stronger core and better spinal stability. Also, whole body vibration brings a full range of benefits, including:

  • Increased blood circulation
  • Faster healing
  • Improved balance and flexibility
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Increased bone density
