Exercise rehabilitation helps to improve flexibility and balance
Flexibility is the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe muscles, but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Along with building muscle strength and aiding in recovery, these exercises can also improve flexibility and are a vital part of maintaining a sound body. Balance is improved by functionally strengthening muscles that support the joints, as well as global stabilizers, muscles that control stability of the trunk.
The body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas without a person knowing it. During this time most people will have no symptoms. When someone notices they have symptoms, that occurs when the body can no longer compensate for the deficit. Physiotherapy can be used to resolve the deficit and remove the compensation.

Our chiropractors specialize in providing gentle, safe and effective chiropractic care to patients of all ages. Spinal adjustments correct the alignment, motion and function of the vertebral joint.
