Therapeutic Exercises and Stretching in Palo Alto, CA

Therapeutic Exercises and Stretching in Palo Alto, CA

A chiropractor uses various therapies to treat problems of the neck and back. An initial visit to the chiropractor would involve a careful physical and neurological evaluation to help diagnose spine-related pain. A detailed diagnosis would enable the chiropractor to suggest to the patient an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment would generally involve exercises, spinal traction, soft tissue therapy, ultrasound, counseling, TENS, and lifestyle changes.

Therapeutic Exercises and Stretching

Your Palo Alto chiropractor could suggest exercises for the back and neck to help decrease pain and muscle deterioration. These exercises are effective for pain management. With time, corrective exercises could promote joint health, increase muscle and collective strength, and maximize stability.

Regular stretching would work on the tissues of your body, making your body more flexible, enhancing movement, and protecting it from further injuries.

Spinal Traction

Spinal traction helps decompress the spine, minimize vertebral pain, and reduce nerve pressure. A traction device would be used in areas of the spine to reduce pain.

Soft Tissue Manual Therapy

Soft tissue manual therapy helps improve the state and function of soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, etc. 

Muscle Stimulation

This type of therapy transmits electric pulses to specific areas of the body to help relieve the patient from pain, inflammation, and muscle spasm.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation)

TENS is a muscle stimulation machine that helps control pain. The intensity of stimulation can be externally controlled, helping provide relief to patients from severe pain.

Ultrasound

A deep heat therapy, when applied to soft tissues, can treat the condition by sound waves. This therapy can help reduce pain, swelling, and stiffness, as well as increase blood circulation.
