The MedX Spine Rehabilitation rounds out our total health package here at the Stanislaus Chiropractic Wellness Center. This supervised program improves muscular flexibility, endurance, and strength, thus making the Chiropractor's treatments more effective.
It is treatment designed to help patients recover from spinal injuries. It utilizes state-of-the-art computer-aided equipment to exercise the muscles that support the spine.
After a thorough functional evaluation, a rehabilitation doctor prescribes a specific exercise program for each patient. This program is designed to restore their spine and soft tissues to a preinjury condition. Patients perform exercises under constant supervision of a trained specialist.
Most patients find this form of treatment very stimulating and helpful. Exercises are limited to the patient's pain-free range of motion and are done with safe and tolerable weight loads.
It is done in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments. When a doctor determines a patient's muscles are too weak and cannot support their spine very well, he or she may refer that patient to a facility that specializes in spinal rehabilitation. The supervised programs improve muscular flexibility, endurance, and strength, thus making the chiropractor's treatments more effective.
