What is Posture Rehab?
Posture Rehab is a program designed to improve spinal stability for chiropractic patients. The program seeks to educate its participants in improving flexibility, strength, and balance through a carefully determined, core-body specific series of stretches and exercises, taught by a trained Posture Rehab Facilitator over the course of several one-on-one sessions.
How does it benefit me?
The goals of this program are to help chiropractic patients achieve an improved range of motion, alleviate symptoms, and establish a routine for proactive self-care. Posture Rehab seeks to decrease the frequency of maintenance chiropractic visits, utilizing the body’s own muscles to stabilize spinal structures and relieve recurrent pain.
How long is a session?
The initial visit for Posture Rehab consists of a 30-minute session with a Posture Rehab Facilitator. This session includes a short interview, initial assessment, several Range of Motion indication tests, and a complete run-thru of 15 to 18 stretches and exercises led by the trained facilitator.
Follow-up sessions are 15 minutes in length. Depending upon the collaborative decision of the patient, trainer, and the doctor, follow-up sessions typically number anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions every 4 to 8 weeks.
Once you have reached maximum improvement, you will be encouraged to continue your rehab routine as a daily activity, as well as continue any maintenance chiropractic treatment recommended by the doctor.
