Therapeutic Exercise

Keeping the healing process moving. 

Therapeutic exercise is just as important as chiropractic, acupuncture, ART and massage treatments. An injury can cause our deep stabilizing muscles to shut off or prohibit their correct firing patterns. Therapeutic exercises reset the muscles and provide the stability that your body needs to hold and maintain its correct function.

These exercises will complement all the bodywork that you receive in our office and also prepare you to get back to the activities that you enjoy. We love teaching you exercises because it puts you back in control of your own healing process!

Questions and answers about Therapeutic Exercise

What is the importance of exercise?

Our bodies are designed for movement. Since so many of us have desk jobs now, our sedentary lifestyle can cause mechanical dysfunction in our bodies. Exercise should play a larger role in our daily health and wellness. You don’t have to be the next Ironman athlete (although you definitely can); all you have to do is find something that you enjoy that will increase your heart rate and get you moving.

Why do we teach exercise?

At Embrace, we want to empower you to take control of your health and wellness. We can help you in the office, but we need your help outside the office. Exercise will maintain the chiropractic and acupuncture work that we do with you, and it will help increase your strength and flexibility that you may have lost with the injury you sustained. It is also important to evaluate and advise you on the exercises you may already be doing. We want to make sure that your exercises are not doing more harm to your body.

How can we help athletes with performance and optimization?

If you’re an athlete, we can improve your performance by evaluating your mechanics. We strive to teach you how to be more efficient at your sport by teaching you how to increase your strength and flexibility. Believe it or not, even the most elite athletes will have weakness and dysfunction, and you can retrain yourself to correct both.
