Rehabilitation from sports injuries, accident or chronic pain is not a one step process, but it doesn't have to be as traumatising as you think! At ChiroCure we don’t just treat your injuries we will work with you to make sure you receive a full recovery. Chiropractors during rehabilitation aim to reduce healing time, de-conditioning and increase self-reliance and muscular function (Triano, Mcgregor, Skogsbergh, 1997)
Treatment will also help to reduce the feeling of fatigue, exhaustion, sleeplessness and slow down spinal ageing, improve blood flow, restore nervous system function and reduces all pain symptoms. Our remedial massage practitioners, and doctors of chiropractic offer patients help and advice to better manage their pain and injury. We offer supplement advice with practitioner prescriptions, nutrition and dietary care, lifestyle advice, work station assessment and more. One of our methods of ensuring you perform at your best is our individualised take home programs to further your recovery. However, without regular exercise to increase core strength or whatever it may be, injuries often do not fully recover or worse pain may increase or become more regular (Liebenson, 2007).

Exercise programs designed by our chiropractors
We offer customised rehabilitation exercise programs for a wide range of injuries that will accelerate your recovery and strengthen the injured area reducing the likelihood of relapse. This includes but is not limited to corrective stretching, strengthening and stabilisation. Our methods ensure a quick recovery and muscular healing. Whether you are recovering from a lower back injury, disc bulge, arthritis, hip replacement, neck, shoulder, wrist, elbow, ankle or knee injuries, we can customise an exercise program that will suit your recovery pace. All our rehabilitation exercises are based on best current practices that are evidence based.
Every rehabilitation protocol is phased with goals and criteria to progress through each phase. Our chiropractor will advise you of any exercise materials needed and also explains sets / reps / intensity / times per day etc. We will also provide a hard copy as well as an email copy of your program, so that exercises can be accessed electronically.

What can exercise do for you?
• Strong Body – Exercise helps strengthens joints and muscles all over the body.
• Osteoporosis – Regular exercise promotes bone formation and can help prevent bone loss associated with aging.
• Balance – Exercise improves your balance, and good balance will certainly help you avoid future injuries.
• New Injuries – Exercise is essential for overcoming injuries. Injuries prevent you from using the affected or weakened area.
Rehabilitation exercises can help you to strengthen the body, and restore proper balance.
• Old Injuries – While timely rehabilitation is very important, exercise can also help in coming back from old injuries.
This process will not happen as quickly as immediate rehabilitation, but is well worth the time spent.
• Proper Exercise – Before you start an exercise program, be sure to consult with ChiroCure practitioners.
Some forms of exercise may slow down your rehabilitation, or even make your problem worse.
Talk to Dr Tania about rehabilitation rather than relying on the fitness staff at the local gym.
• Weight and Posture – Exercise helps you maintain a healthy weight.
This, in turn, contributes to good posture and the lessening of unnecessary stress on the body.
Other Health Benefits – Regular exercise has been shown to improve many health areas, including: the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and depression.
This is only a small list of the benefits of exercise for health and rehabilitation.
