You may be suffering with neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches, shoulder pain, fibromyalgia or other symptoms. You may be getting treatment to get pain relief. Part of a treatment plan should be a doctor showing you daily stretching to be done at home. This not only helps expedite your recovery but also helps you maintain results and prevent future problems.
Watch this short 5 minute video why daily stretching is so important for everybody:
In our office, we show every patients a series of stretching for the neck, low back, entire spinal column, legs and shoulders. If you would like to learn the stretches, watch the video above and look at the comments section. I uploaded 3 videos we put together for all of our patients in case they forget how to do them.
It’s important to note, if you have pain anywhere, that you get assessed by a chiropractor. Pain is a sign that something is wrong. Ignoring pain can lead to the underlying problem getting progressively worse. Stretching won’t fix the cause but can provide temporary relief. Daily stretching is a component of our treatment plan to help patients correct the imbalances. Every single day you put stress and strain into your entire body. If you do not keep up with daily stretching, the problems will likely return. Our patients that keep up with doing the stretching help maintain their results between their visits. Spinal hygiene, just like dental hygiene, is an important part to help maintain your body and health!
Our Chiropractor in Freehold does a thorough evaluation on every patient to find the joint dysfunction that is irritating the nerves, discs, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Using gentle chiropractic techniques, soft tissue treatment and therapeutic stretching helps our patients reach their goals of getting back to their daily activities and living pain free again.
