Therapeutic Exercises and Stretches

Underwood Chiropractic┬áis prepared to serve individuals’ needs for therapeutic exercises and stretches. Dr. Underwood has built a reputation for effectively reducing patients’ pain as well as enabling them to stay stable. Since muscles stabilize joints, the key to long term stability is making sure that all the muscles of the body are working properly. A thorough examination helps Dr. Underwood determine exactly which muscles are weak and which are tight and shortened. When a patient is out of severe pain, Dr. Underwood will recommend and guide the patient in implementing a program of specific exercises and stretches to address those muscle imbalances. Long term stability is the goal. In the case of a severe injury, Dr. Underwood may make a referral to a local physical therapist for more structured rehabilitation of injured muscles.
