Corrective Exercises in Huntington, NY

Making the most of your physical therapy

Whether you work at a desk or lift heavy loads from dawn until dusk, your body gets used to moving in the same way day after day. Frequently used muscles get stronger while others are allowed to atrophy, causing imbalances, loss of mobility, and decreased flexibility. Your body will compensate for the imbalances for a while, but eventually you may start experiencing pain in the weaker muscles. Before resorting to drastic measures for pain management, talk to the professionals at Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation. We specialize in creating customized corrective exercise programs that are designed to balance your body, maximize body movement, and eliminate pain. When used in conjunction with chiropractic or physical therapy services, you have one effective pain management program!

What are corrective exercises?

Very different from a regular exercise program, corrective exercises are designed to make positive changes in the way your body moves. To maximize this unique exercise technique, the experts at Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation start off with a detailed physical examination. This analysis is used to identify any issues or imbalances that may affect the way your body handles daily activities. Once the analysis is complete, our spine care specialists will develop a specific corrective exercise program that will concentrate not only on increasing flexibility, muscle strength, and mobility but eliminating the underlying cause of chronic pain.

The best part about corrective exercises is that they can be done from the comfort of your own home! At Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation, we teach “blueprint” exercises that can address your unique problems and increase the effectiveness of your spinal correction up to 40%. With these specific stretches and exercises, you can re-align your body, strengthen muscles and connective tissues, and improve your overall health.

Benefits of corrective exercises

Whether you are training for a marathon or sitting in meetings all day, corrective exercises can:

  • Reduce pain
  • Control pain without the use of drugs, manipulation, or surgery
  • Increase athletic performance
  • Decrease the risk of further injuries for training
  • Detect and correct physical weaknesses and imbalances
  • Improve strength, mobility, flexibility, and posture
  • Relieve stress

The perfect combination

Chiropractic care and physiotherapy are great for decreasing lower back pain, especially if you work with the spine care specialists at Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation. However, if you are looking to speed up your recovery time and promote faster pain elimination, then talk with your chiropractor about supplementing your treatment plan with corrective exercises. By adding a few simple exercise techniques after your chiropractic adjustment or throughout your daily routine, you can help re-train your body to move as it was designed to move. Our experts will walk you through the movements and demonstrate proper form to ensure the best results.
