Physical Therapy and Physical Rehabilitation
Simple and effective exercises, stretches and instructions tailored to restore strength, stability, mobility and function.
Rehabilitation is a multifaceted approach to promoting optimal health and function through stabilizing and strengthening exercises. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are both considered active therapies where the patient actively performs the therapy. Chiropractic adjustments or percussive massage are passive treatments where the treatment is performed by the provider.
For this fact, the effectiveness of physical therapy and rehabilitation are first and foremost under the control of the patient and their conscious decision to act on health. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink, yet we will always have the choice to do what is necessary. With this in mind, the amount of progress achieved in rehab is completely dependent upon the cooperation of the patient under the provider’s guidance.
Support can play a very important role in rehabilitation. The support of friends and family can be extraordinarily rehabilitating in its own right and we should all learn to better support one another. However, you should not rely solely on the support of others. The conscious decision to act, improve and independently support yourself will serve your health far greater than anything anyone else can do for you. As an professional instructor of optimal healing and wellness, Kroft Chiropractic happily helps you achieve mobility and maintain a new life, free from pain.
A Body in Motion Stays in Motion
Within the workforce population, every generation before us lead a significantly more physically demanding lifestyle. Daily physical activity kept a large population of Americans free from obesity and built better states of fitness and health. History always has it's couch potatoes but never before have we seen such a vast population of potato people before. Our modern world of automation, transportation and glorified stationary lifestyles have us wound in a loop from breakfast table, to car seat, to office chair, back to the car seat, to the couch and finally to bed repeated 5 days a week. A routine like that will weaken any body, physically fit or not.
A Body at Rest Stays at Rest
Repetitive behaviors become habits and habits shape lifestyles both good and bad alike. Although the ratios of activity to inactivity should always be considered, the effects of inactivity are subtle, slow and unrelenting where the effects of activity are powerful and long-lasting. Understand it takes a relative fraction of physical activity to effectively offset the physical harm of inactive idleness. 20 minutes a day of physical activity each day effectively offset the stagnation of a 9 to 5 desk job. Consistency is key. 20 minutes of activity each day may be disheartening to those accustomed to instant results.
