Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.


orthotics

Orthotics

Custom orthotics are provided using Sole Supports. These are superior orthotics in design and materials that allow for the best mechanics and support to occur in the feet, allowing better comfort, gait, balance, muscle strength, etc. Dr. Rehl looks to free the feet of their binding adhesions and adjust the bones of the feet as necessary to restore proper biomechanics to the feet, thus also affecting the biomechanics of the body. After it is determined the joints of the feet are moving as best they can then the custom orthotics are created. It is in the best interest of the patients, Dr. Rehl believes, to have properly functioning feet fitted to orthotics as opposed to have the feet measured to an orthotic in their current state, where the feet have adhesions causing restrictions in their movement and where bones may be out of position.
