Spinal structural rehabilitation and functional rehabilitation are two types of exercise programs that are often used to improve musculoskeletal health and function, but they have different goals and should be done in proper order.
Spinal structural rehabilitation is a specialized form of exercise that is designed to help correct spinal imbalances and help restore proper spinal alignment and posture. The structural rehabilitation provided at our clinic works synergistically with the chiropractic adjustments and traction set ups that are part of a patient’s treatment plan. The exercises, adjustments, and traction all work in the mirror image of the patient’s structural imbalances and/or postural distortions.This type of rehabilitation is effective when used during the corrective phase of a patient’s therapy regimen. For most patients, the exercises prescribed are not like anything they have done before. The goal is to improve alignment, balance, and posture.
