Usually patients are prescribed a tailored home exercise program to support treatment and help prevent reoccurrence of your problem.
Best results are achieved when the patient is actively involved in exercise supportive to Osteopathic treatment.
Research has shown that back pain, like other pain syndromes, is less likely to recur in patients that have manual / manipulative therapy and prescriptive exercise together compared with control groups that only underwent manipulative treatment or exercise therapy alone.
At Vital Lifestyle we provide tailored exercise prescriptions for our patients to reinforce what is done in treatment and prevent recurrence of the presenting problem. A balance of stretching and strengthening exercise on a regular basis is essential to healthy joint function in our busy, sedentary, modern world.
