What Is Exercise Therapy?

Exercise therapy is a broad term and is encompassed in many of the other therapies offered at Tauberg Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. Essentially exercise therapy is the use of exercises that are targeted to strengthen and rehabilitate injuries.

How Does Exercise Therapy Work?

When an injury happens there are two different ways to handle it. You can either rest the injured area or you can get the area back to moving as soon as possible. The former used to be the standard of care and the latter is what recent evidence is pointing towards being more effective for the majority of conditions. Restoring the movement of the body as soon as possible after an injury helps get the injured area back to its normal movement faster than resting the area. So one way exercise therapy works is to get the body moving again.
