Active Rehabilitation at Sertell Chiropractic Clinic

Active rehabilitation exercise is used to improve health, maintain fitness, and relieve pain and tightness, while improving overall strength and mobility. When added to your unique care plan, it helps restore the correct use of muscles, bones and the nervous system. It may also help with chronic or ongoing health conditions.

What is Active Rehabilitation?

Patient stretching with therapy bandThe goal of active rehabilitation is to make daily tasks and activities easier and pain free using therapeutic exercises. We work with you one-on-one, supporting your efforts in our clinic, instead of leaving you to figure it out at home.

After assessing your condition, a 3-stage program of care is prepared for each patient, based on their individual situation.

The initial stage deals with the pain and inflammation associated with your issue. Starting with passive therapy using modalities, we instruct you in the correct way to perform the exercises. We gradually add stretches to the routine as the pain subsides.

In stage 2, patients gain more range of motion in the spine as core strengthening and balance exercises with weights are added to the program. Active participation in the exercises produces noticeable results as the spine stabilizes and muscles grow stronger. This develops better alignment and helps adjustments hold better and longer.

Stage 3 is the wellness phase, where the exercise program transitions to a home or gym setting.
