Chiropractic Rehabilitation in El Paso
Chiropractic rehabilitation is the step that will take recovery to the next level and reduce chances of relapse. Often times, Dr. Fred Aguayo, DC adds rehabilitation to a treatment plan to ensure a patient experiences a successful recovery.
Rehabilitation Takes Time and Effort
The struggle with rehabilitation is that many patients don’t like to do it. It involves repetitive rigorous work. Patients dealing with a restricted range of motion and pain don’t want to perform an exercise that feels uncomfortable. A lot of injuries or pain that chiropractic care addresses is pain that has developed over time. It may take several sessions to reverse the effects. These sessions help improve flexibility, joint movement, and muscle strength. It is just like any other exercise that takes repetition and consistency to make a difference.
Types of Rehabilitation
- Foam Rolling and Self-Myofascial Release - This is essentially rolling the back or legs on a foam roll to get knots and tightness out of the muscles. It offers the same benefits as a massage and can be relaxing.
- Stretching - Stretching restores natural resting tension in otherwise tight muscles. The chiropractor will prescribe specific stretches and how long to hold them for. Rushing through stretches does not help.
- Strengthening - Muscle strengthening is an important part of chiropractic rehab. Often times, muscles are imbalanced due to constant improper movements. This causes stress on the joints and muscle spasms.
- Joint Mobility - Joints are especially important to recovery. Increasing and recovering joint mobility might involve stretching, complex exercises, and foam rolling.
Chiropractic Rehab is Effective
Chiropractic adjustments are proven to be effective in minimizing pain and restoring the body’s natural functions. However, rehabilitation is what will make the recovery more effective. Training the body to use muscles and joints correctly is extremely important.
