Therapeutic Exercise


From pain relief to reaching your full health potential, Dr. Bruce Handelsman and Dr. Catherine Hall at Nyack Wellness in Nyack, NY offer therapeutic exercises and other methods to help you achieve your goals.

Why Do Chiropractors Use Therapeutic Exercises in Treatment?

Chiropractic care is designed around the body’s ability to heal itself when everything is working properly. It’s no surprise, then, that exercise would play a role.

Therapeutic exercises aren’t a typical workout, though. They are also referred to as corrective exercises – aptly named, as they correct issues in the musculoskeletal system. They are utilized to stretch and strengthen targeted areas to help achieve the desired result. Dr. Handelsman and Dr. Hall combine therapeutic exercises at Nyack Wellness in Nyack, NY as they are vital in providing the following benefits and more.

Pain Relief

Whether you suffer from neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain, or pain in another area, therapeutic exercises are beneficial. They help restore the range of motion, promote healing, improve circulation, release tension, and more. They can also release endorphins, which are a natural painkiller the body produces.

Injury Recovery and Prevention

Injuries in the musculoskeletal system can often leave you feeling hopeless. Pain, limited mobility, tension, and other symptoms can make it difficult to move. By using targeted movements, such symptoms can be addressed while getting to the core of them. Additionally, once the area has been strengthened and tension has been released, the risk of sustaining that injury again is significantly lower.

Improved Performance

Athletes are always working to improve their performance, but they’re not the only ones who want to get through their days at their peak. Office workers, manual laborers, stay-at-home parents, and everyone in between want to manage their tasks as well as possible. Therapeutic exercise in conjunction with other chiropractic methods can help ensure you perform optimally – regardless of your tasks or goals.
