Corrective Exercises

Corrective Exercises with our Vancouver Chiropractor

Dr. Trevor Kilian is a Vancouver chiropractor who employs a variety of natural and evidence-based techniques and services to help his patients recover from a variety of acute and chronic conditions. Corrective exercise is an important part of the plan of care for the vast majority of his patients.

What Are Corrective Exercises?

Customized, modifiable, and specific exercise has been an important part of functional mobility and healing within the rehabilitation world for decades. At our chiropractic care clinic, our corrective exercises are highly variable and individualized.

These exercises are prescribed a lot like medicine would be: with a specific dose, type, and intended effect. They may be single joint or multi-joint, weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing, weighted or unweighted, isometric or concentric/eccentric. Just about any muscle group or area of the body can be worked through corrective exercises.

The Benefits of Exercise Therapy

In general, exercise therapy is intended to correct an underlying issue and speed healing. They can heal tissue, reduce swelling, relieve pain, improve range of motion, increase strength, optimize joint stability and alignment, improve neuromuscular control and balance, and/or maximize endurance.

To confer these benefits, corrective exercises need to be modified in particular ways as recommended by a chiropractor or other healthcare professional. For instance, a person in the early stages of injury recovery will often need to perform high repetitions (e.g., 20 to 30 reps) of a given exercise with little to no load, since this prescription helps reduce swelling and promotes tissue healing. Later on in their recovery, they may need exercises with fewer repetitions (e.g., 8-15) and added resistance to strengthen a weakened muscle.

Common Types of Therapeutic Exercise Prescribed by Our Vancouver Chiropractor Team

Corrective exercises can be done at home in between visits. We'll make sure you'll be fully informed about why we recommend certain ones, how to do them, and how to modify them appropriately. Common ones we prescribe include:

  • Pelvic tilts and abdominal bracing exercises
  • Rotator cuff muscle exercises, such as T's, I's, and Y's
  • Static and dynamic stretches of the hamstrings and hip flexors

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    Monika W.
  • "Dr Killian and his team are so wonderful and informative! I was about to skip the group info session, but I found it helpful to understand the correct healing process for me . I have had back pain for so long and I wondered why. I have poor posture and aligning that I didn't even know was affecting me. Dr Killian helped me learn that I can heal with regular adjustments, better self care practice and determination. I only started less than a month ago and I am noticing a huge difference!! Definitely recommend them!!"
