The main rehabilitation we use in our office is neuromuscular reeducation using pressure biofeedback. That creates an isometric contraction which stimulates the little structural muscles, your core musculature, the multifidi muscles.
We also use pettibon fulcrum rehab that strengthens the larger muscles, increases flexibility, increases strength, and restores the cervical and lumbar curves in the office as well.
Those are the two main things that we use. We like to use active rehab, and we also have home exercise programs. So, 99% of our patients have things that they can do to help themselves at home. We tell them that this is a team effort and we need to do that.
The common complaints of our practice’s patients are neck pain, back pain and headaches. Those are the symptoms that we see. The conditions are typically the spinal subluxation, and 99% of the time now, most of it can be related back to the forward head posture. We’re all sitting on computers all day long. That head comes forward and it has a devastating effect.
