Exercise rehabilitation helps to improve flexibility and balance:

Flexibility is the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe muscles but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Along with physiotherapy building muscle strength and aiding in recovery, these exercises can also improve flexibility, a vital part of maintaining a sound body. Balance can be difficult for the body after time, regardless if you are injured or not, the body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing the body off-balance just from daily activities.

Physical therapy treatment modalities used at RE Sport:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments help to correct the alignment, motion and/or function of the vertebral joint. This misalignment of the spine is referred to as “subluxation” and can effect the nervous system which controls the body. By correcting the subluxations of the spine, Dr. Cooney is able to restore optimal nervous system function thereby reducing pain and improving the overall health of the patient.

Trigger Point Therapy

Dr. Cooney treats myofascial pain syndromes such as myofascial trigger points or adhesions with manual myofascial therapy. This therapy normally includes the use of direct pressure upon the trigger point, or the use of active anchor-and-stretch myofascial release techniques.  Stretching and exercise programs along with additional non invasive therapies may be recommended by the doctor in order to increase speed of recovery.

Custom Exercise Programs

We teach our patients specific exercise techniques to help them strengthen and correct their individual health problems. These exercises are designed so you have the ability to perform them in the comfort of your own home.
