Depending on your condition, you will receive simple and effective exercises, stretches and instructions tailored to restore your body's strength, stability, mobility and function.
Rehabilitation is a multifaceted approach to promoting optimal healing and functional restoration through stabilizing and strengthening exercises. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are both considered active therapies where the patient is actively performing the therapy, unlike with chiropractic adjustments or percussive massage where the treatment is performed by the provider.
It is for this fact that effectiveness of physical therapy and rehabilitation are first and foremost under the control of the patient and their decision to choose better 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 needs to be done.
That being said, the amount of progress achieved in rehab is dependent upon the cooperation of the patient under the provider’s guidance and support. 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, to improve, to independently support yourself and to stand by that decision is a far greater tool on the journey to optimal health, indeed. As an professional instructor of optimal healing and wellness, Kroft Chiropractic is here to happily help you achieve mobility and maintain a new life, free from back pain.
A body in motion stays in motion. When taking the general workforce population into consideration, every generation before us lead a significantly more physically demanding lifestyle. Obesity was far less common and the physical activity kept people in a better state of fitness and health. Now, there will always be couch potatoes in history but never before have we seen so many people fit the bill than today. Our modern world of automation, transportation and stationary lifestyles have us wound in a loop from office chair, to car seat, to couch, to bed and repeat 5 days a week.
A body at rest stays at rest. Repetitive behavior becomes habit and habits shape lifestyles, both good and bad. Plenty of people break the monotony with the habit of physical exercise in one way or another, as they should and good for them. They know what needs to be done and they chose to do it. Now although the ratios of activity to inactivity should always be taken into account, the effects of inactivity are subtle and slow yet unrelenting where as the effects of activity are powerful and long-lasting.
With this in mind, realize that it takes relatively a fraction of physical activity to offset the physical harm of inactive idleness. 20 minutes of exercise each day is all it takes to offset the stagnation of a 9 to 5 desk job. The key here is that it needs to be a consistent 20 minutes each day which can often be disheartening to those accustomed to instant results.
The biggest challenge is choosing to be active, to pursue health as a favor to yourself! CHOOSE HEALTH! Learn to look after yourself with the kind of compassion you might give your child, your pet or a loved one under your care. Choose to care for yourself. Choose to challenge yourself for the betterment of your life and Kroft Chiropractic will help guide you in the right direction to a better, healthier, happier life.
