Learn More About Physical Therapy
As part of our NCBE certified physical rehabilitation clinic, we offer comprehensive chiropractic treatment for Dallas patients, including corrective exercises. We create a corrective exercise plan by using gentle, effective stretching techniques that cater to your individual needs. Corrective exercises are an essential part of making a complete recovery following sports related strain or trauma. They strengthen, rebuild, and realign the different parts of the body allowing them to move effortlessly and comfortably.
The purpose of corrective exercises is to undo unconscious compensations and repetitive stresses that occur during daily activity. For many athletes, especially those who have been injured numerous times, the body begins to stress specific muscles, joints, or tendons to take pressure off damaged areas. Unfortunately, this compensation creates pain in different areas over time. Corrective exercises re-teach the body how to move properly, reducing strain and restoring comfortable motion.
Dr. Z and the AlignRight Injury & Rehab team carefully evaluate each patient to determine where they are imbalanced, finding areas of weakness, and exploring limitations. We then create a customized, corrective plan. Once patients learn the exercises here, then they can complete them in the comfort of their own homes later.
The goal of corrective exercises is to:
- Improve range of motion and comfort during movement
- Improve power and raise level of athletic performance
- Improve stability when in motion (dynamic) and while stationary (static)
- Improve strength
- Improve weakness and imbalance
- Improve posture
- Re-pattern the range of movement
- Reduce risk for further injury
Physiotherapy is the main form of a treatment to reduce pain and restore range of motion impeded by several concerns, including: auto accidents, workplace injuries, slips and falls, sports related injuries, chronic pain, arthritis, rehabilitation following sprains and fractures, cerebral palsy, and head injuries.
Whatever the cause of your pain or discomfort, at AlignRight Injury & Rehab, we offer patients form Dallas, Richardson, Plano, and all surrounding communities comfortable, effective physiotherapy. The purpose of physiotherapy is to improve patients’ mobility, comfort and fluidity of movement, enhance function, and provide a better quality of life. That all starts with a careful assessment and diagnosis from Dr. Z. Once we understand the source and site of the concern, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan, and provide education on how to stay healthy and prevent future illness or injuries.
