Therapeutic Exercise

Dr. Joseph Gitto of Gitto Advanced Chiropractic and Functional Nutrition, serving Northfield, NJ, and the nearby vicinity, prescribes therapeutic exercises for patients with injuries and chronic conditions. This treatment approach is a highly customizable technique that our chiropractor can use alongside other treatments. Before you visit us, it helps to better understand this therapy and if it may benefit you, and even how so. 

General Information

Therapeutic exercises at our Northfield, NJ, office and in general consist of a chiropractor guiding you through stretches that focus on a specific area of your body. They increase in intensity and repetition as you heal. Ultimately, this allows you to gradually increase your flexibility and function in a region. It helps with pain management, as well. 

When our practitioner recommends this treatment, you'll receive a plan specifically for your condition that takes into consideration any health issues you have. This allows our chiropractor to create a plan that's safe for you. 

Besides the exercises you do in our office, our practitioner will also recommend how often you could benefit from doing exercises at home to further your recovery. 

What We Use It For 

This particular treatment is useful for treating a range of issues, including chronic conditions and acute injuries. For instance, let's say you have arthritis in your knees. Our practitioner will create a therapeutic exercise plan that gently works the knees. While it won’t necessarily put an end to arthritis, the therapeutic exercises will increase your flexibility and range of motion and possibly slow the disease’s progression. The exercises can also help you better manage your symptoms by easing stiffness. 

On the other hand, our practitioner may recommend exercise therapy if you have a sprain. In this case, you'll still have exercises to complete that will increase in intensity. However, the goal of treatment is slightly different. You're performing physical activity that will enhance the healing process. The exercises may speed up recovery. In some cases, the therapy may optimize your recovery so you'll heal more completely. 

Why Exercise Therapy 

For one, this is a natural treatment, so if you're watching what you put into your body, this could be a solution for you. Not to mention, it works with your body to promote healing. 

Exercise therapy won't cause excruciating pain. Our chiropractor tailors the plan to move at a pace comfortable for you, minimizing any discomfort from the treatment. And we can alter the plan even further if it's causing you discomfort.
