It is a non impact system of exercise that focuses on the deep muscles of the abdomen and spine.
It strengthens and tightens while protecting your lower back, aiding in injury prevention and spinal health.
It lengthens muscles as they are strengthened resulting in long, lean, strong but flexible muscles without the bulk.
It improves alignment without gravity, thus balancing muscles and improving posture.
The movements with breath control are designed to reduce stress and tension and aid in stabilization.
Corrective rehabilitation uses a non traditional approach focusing on movement re-education after physical therapy or during chiropractic care in these four programs:
Core Foundation Training
Back Care Program
Joint Foundation Training
Maintenance and Prevention
Increasing strength and endurance of the body's mechanics during performance in a multitude of movement patterns.
CORE FOUNDATION TRAINING
With core foundation training, you are building a solid and flexible base, creating symmetry in strength and movement, and challenging the core control of the body in many directions.
Training your spine to operate efficiently and optimally in all functions allows for fluid and precise movements whether slow or powerful, articulative or fixed and while maintaining a natural ideal alignment as we age and perform repetitive activities our spine can stay healthy.
At the deepest layer of muscles in the human body are two crucial elements for ultimate body function. First, attached to the spine to keep it symmetrical, flexible, powerful and capable of a multitude of range of motions, the Multifidus muscles are the only muscle fibers in the human body that are designed to be strongest in their longest position. Secondly, the Transversus Abdominis muscle is the key to power and endurance all while keeping us upright and walking tall.
Back Care Program
In the Back-Care Program, we focus on relieving tightness within the spine that causes dysfunction or limitations, releasing larger superficial muscles that restrict the spine or pelvis from operating correctly, strengthen the core, and re-train the body mechanics to function correctly.
As we age, adaptations occur in how our body functions. Each body functions differently depending on the individual’s structure, the repetitive performance in our daily lives, and from any traumas our body has experienced. Therefor it is important to implement exercises and stretches that will create symmetry and strength of the spine.
The “posterior chain” (deep intrinsic/superficial muscles of the back), core muscles, and our larger hip/thigh “mover” muscles are addressed.
All joints are complex in movement patterns and serve multiple functions at any given time. After physical therapy treatment’s we train these joints from small movement patterns to larger movements, strengthening the muscles to support all the actions in your daily lives.
Often, secondary movement patterns occur to keep you from feeling pain in one area, only to have a secondary issue arise, so movement patterns are addressed by strengthening and re-training the correct pattern to eliminate re-injury or re-occurrences of dysfunction.
Maintenance & Prevention
This program follows a release from physical therapy and coordinates with your chiropractor or physician. Joining in a small group exercise session under the guidance and supervision of a CRT specialist, progressive homework is given to achieve optimal recovery.
