Improve Your Body’s Function With Functional Rehabilitation
These days, everyone wants to see immediate results. And when you’re experiencing pain somewhere in your body, immediate relief probably doesn’t seem like too much to ask. However, it’s important to realize that pain is typically a symptom of a larger issue.
The main goal of functional rehabilitation is to identify what that larger problem is and to focus on fixing the underlying issues in order to gain a more permanent improvement. While it does provide some pain relief, this chiropractic treatment focuses more on the cause of the problem and how to fix it rather than just treating the symptoms.
Traditional Chiropractic Care vs. Functional Rehabilitation
First of all, both traditional and functional rehabilitating chiropractic care are safe and beneficial. The main difference is that traditional chiropractic care focuses on a series of adjustments to the spine to realign it and provide pain relief. While functional rehabilitation also uses chiropractic adjustment to realign the spine, it places greater focus on the central nervous system and the function of the spine as a whole. Functional rehabilitation works to ensure that the entire body is operating at its best to improve function and general health.
