Having a PT Aide as part of your chiropractic program can be crucial to a speedy recovery from pain or injury. Strengthening the muscles around your spine is key. Your muscles have been conditioned to hold your previous “bad posture” and now need corrective, strengthening exercises to keep your “new” spinal alignment in its proper place.
Improve Mobility & Motion
Movement can help you prevent obesity, which may be responsible for at least 18% of US adult deaths. Meanwhile, recent studies suggest that prolonged sitting can be unhealthy, and that walking just a little bit more each day can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Consistent movement is also vital to maintaining a healthy balance system, and that’s important because falls often lead to significant, costly injuries.
Physical therapists work with their patients and clients of all ages and abilities to expand, restore, and maintain motion.
Participate In Your Recovery
Physical therapists routinely work collaboratively with their patients. Treatment plans can be designed for the patient’s individual goals, challenges, and needs. Receiving treatment by a physical therapist is rarely a passive activity, and participating in your own recovery can be empowering. In many cases, patients develop an ongoing relationship with their physical therapist to maintain optimum health and movement abilities across the lifespan.
