Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting specific problems. Depending the matter of your concern, a chiropractor at the BBCC may give you a list of exercises to perform to reduce discomfort. The focus of therapeutic exercise is to regain flexibility, strength, and endurance related to specific physical problems. Therapeutic exercise aims to improve, restore, and prevent loss of physical function. It can also improve a patient’s overall health, fitness, and sense of well-being.

Therapeutic exercise can be performed at home, and gives you the power to improve your quality of life.
