Corrective Exercises

What Are Corrective Exercises?

While many people have heard that they might require surgery to correct an injury, the good news is that this is not always the case. There are other options available. At Multicare Health Clinic, we provide alternative healthcare options to the individuals and families who live in Sioux City. The goal of chiropractic care is to identify the root cause of someone's issues and provide a way to target it. In this manner, we will not only eliminate the person's symptoms but also prevent the issue from coming back. One way we do this is through corrective exercises.

How Do Corrective Exercises Work?

When someone comes to see us for help with an injury, we are going to carry out a comprehensive evaluation. We are going to look at the muscle groups in and around the injured body part. Sometimes, an imbalance exists between two opposing sets of muscles. Muscles oppose each other if one causes flexion and the other causes extension, for example.

If one of these groups is much stronger than the other, the result is a muscle imbalance that might lead to pain and discomfort around the site of the injury. Corrective exercises aim to correct this imbalance by strengthening the group that is getting overpowered. At Multicare Health Clinic, we are going to take the time to look closely at the patient's muscle groups. Then, we are going to design a set of exercises that are going to target the weaker muscle group, rectifying the issue.
