What is Functional Rehabilitation and training?

Functional rehabilitation uses controlled movements targeting an area of weakness or dysfunction. By working on strength, condition and coordination, functional training and rehabilitation Dr. Chris works to enhance the relationship between the nervous and muscular systems.

Key components of functional rehabilitation:

  • Conditioning - Manipulating the body to allow a patent to associate a desired behavior with a specific physical activity, this creates new muscle memory
  • Coordination -Training muscles to work together in executing specific movements
  • Strength - Applying high force against a heavy resistance which increases patients’ stamina

Ultimately, you will feel better as your body’s mind and muscle “collaborate” through training and chiropractic care.
