Is stretching right for me?
Everyone benefits from stretching, but if you have an injury, it’s important to stretch the proper way. Your Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab provider reviews your lifestyle habits, symptoms, and medical history. They complete a physical exam and may use X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure to find the root cause of your discomfort.
Your provider then tailors a holistic treatment plan based on your personalized needs. They may change your treatment regimen as tissues begin to heal or become stronger and more flexible.
What should I expect during provider-assisted stretching?
During stretching sessions at Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab, you relax in a comfortable therapy room on a cushioned chair or table. Your provider manually manipulates soft tissues, stretches them for you, and lets you know which stretches to complete at home between in-office sessions.
You may also benefit from chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, or home remedies (ice packs, heat packs, bracing, etc.) to find long-lasting pain relief or speed up healing after an injury.
How often should I complete stretching exercises?
Your Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab specialist lets you know when to schedule provider-assisted stretching at the office. You might come in once weekly or several times a week, at least initially. They encourage you to stretch at home too. Make sure to warm up your muscles before you begin stretching.
