Chiropractic Exercises Chicago

We provide Corrective and Therapeutic Exercise Services

At Advanced Spine & Sports Care, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" chiropractic exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these therapeutic exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.

Research has shown significant functional improvement and shorter recovery time when therapeutic exercises are performed in addition to chiropractic treatment. These exercises can decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability, and range of motion, and protect against new and recurring injuries. Our office team will show you how to do the recommended chiropractic exercises and supervise you until you are comfortable doing them on your own.

What Problems Can Chiropractic Exercises Treat?

Many people don’t realize what a diverse range of problems and conditions chiropractic care can treat. As well treating common problems like back pain, neck pain and restricted motion, chiropractors can address problems like weak immune systems, fibromyalgia and stress.

Corrective exercises can correct dysfunctions and increase performance, while therapeutic exercises can restore and improve a person’s strength after an injury, helping them to regain balance, strength, stability, and flexibility to live a pain-free life.  

Exercises can play a key role in treating many different problems, including tension headaches, migraines, improper posture and poor blood flow. The right exercises can promote better digestion, help develop and tone muscles, and improve neuromuscular control.

Chiropractic exercises are often used to address chronic muscle tension, which can be the result of muscles compensating for weaker muscles. This is a serious problem that can cause partial spine dislocation. While spinal realignment can treat this, exercises help to strengthen the weaker muscles and reduce the risk of tension and spinal misalignment reoccurring. 

The chiropractic exercise services at Advanced Spine & Sports Care can also increase your performance in endurance sports and activities. You can talk to our friendly chiropractors about exercises that’ll help to increase strength and mobility so you can improve your overall performance or get back to enjoying the activities you love after an injury. 

What Do Chiropractic Exercises Involve?

As with all aspects of chiropractic care, the aim of chiropractic exercises is to improve the patient’s quality of life. Exercises can help with the prevention, management and elimination of pain for people that have been injured, have poor posture or are required to perform repetitive motions due to their work or hobbies. 

Before chiropractic exercises are added to your treatment plan, your chiropractor will assess your symptoms, movement patterns and fitness level. You’ll be taught how to follow the exercises safely and how to get the most benefit from them before introducing them into your daily routine. 

The exercises that your chiropractor will advise will depend on your specific needs. Some of the exercises and stretches that we can teach you at Advanced Spine & Sports Care, include:

  • Dead Bugs
  • Lying Hip Abduction
  • Lying Leg Curls
  • Pigeon Pose
  • Prone Butterfly
  • Prone Overhead Press
  • Reverse Snow Angel
  • Scapula Retraction
  • Split Squat
  • Standing Hip Flexion
  • The Bird Dog
  • The Clamshell
  • Upright Cuban Press

Not only will you receive expert instruction on the best stretches and exercises to reduce pain and increase strength, but on the Advanced Spine & Sports Care website you’ll find an abundance of resources to help you follow these exercises in your own home.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Exercises 

Exercise is an important aspect of many chiropractic treatment plans. At Advanced Spine & Sports Care, we believe in the power of chiropractic exercises to improve the wellbeing of our patients and help them towards a fast and safe recovery.

Here are just some of the many reasons why we believe in promoting chiropractic exercises:

 

  • Increases the Effectiveness of Other Treatment

 

Chiropractic exercises complement many other types of treatment, allowing patients to get much more out of chiropractic care. Exercise can be particularly effective when used in conjunction with aspects of physical therapy and manual chiropractic treatments, such as electrical stimulation, mobilization and manipulation.

 

  • Provides Long-Term Relief

 

When used alongside other effective chiropractic therapies, exercise can give patients long-term relief from pain. Improvements to joint health, strength, muscles, stability and the many other capabilities of chiropractic exercise can also help patients to enjoy a better quality of life in the long term.

 

  • Allows Patients to Take Control of Their Recovery

 

Following a specially designed exercise routine helps patients to play a crucial role in their own recovery with the knowledge that what they’re doing is good for their health and wellbeing. Understanding what constitutes healthy and effective exercises can benefit patients long after they’ve recovered. 

 

  • Reduces Recurrences of Problems

 

Chiropractic exercises can reduce the chances of problems occurring again. By strengthening muscles instead of being afraid to use them, patients can speed up their recovery and improve the overall health of their bodies. 

 

  • Tailored Plans Treat the Individual

 

The chiropractic exercise treatment plans that we create at Advanced Spine & Sports Care are entirely unique to the individual. Treatment plans can include different exercises for strengthening or healing, be designed to accommodate different fitness levels, be simple or advanced, or gradually evolve over time.
