Therapeutic Exercises / Core Classes

What Are Therapeutic Exercises?

Therapeutic exercises are body movements that are planned and systematic that help improve your body’s physical function and strengthen and develop physical fitness. There are 3 main types of therapeutic exercises; function, fitness & strength. The goal of these categories is to achieve and maintain physical fitness.

Why Are Therapeutic Exercises Helpful?

If you’re suffering from chronic spinal misalignment, chances are your core isn’t working at 100%. It doesn’t matter if you can sprint a marathon—if you aren’t exercising your core muscle groups, you’re doing your spine a disservice. A solid core—that’s the muscles in your abs, back, thighs and butt —will do wonders to protect your spine. The core muscles provide preventative and curative support.
