Exercise Rehabilitation


Exercise Rehabilitation

Exercise Rehabilitation at Greater Chicago Specialty Physicians (GCSP) is different. It places its focus on strength, flexibility, mobility and stability in order to help patients manage pain, get out of pain, stay out of pain and return to functional activities of daily living.

In addition to exercise rehabilitation, our chiropractors also use spinal manipulations, manual therapy, nutrition counseling and ergonomic counseling in order to help you get pain free, get moving and get well again.


What Conditions Are Treated Using Exercise Rehabilitation?

There are many different types of exercise rehabilitation techniques depending on the condition being treated. Exercise rehabilitation can be used to treat a variety of health conditions ranging from neuro-musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and injury related.


How Does Exercise Rehabilitation Work?

Exercise rehabilitation corrects pain and improves health by increasing strength, mobility, flexibility, stability and endurance. It can provide both short- and long-term benefits. In most cases of pain and injury, some muscles become short, contracted and overworked in order to compensate for other muscles which may have become weak over time or following injury. Exercise rehabilitation helps provide stretching techniques for the short, contracted muscles and strengthening techniques for the weak muscles.

In order for exercise rehabilitation to lead to successful outcomes it is important to first see a specialist who is trained to be able to recognize the overworked muscles versus the weak muscles. Our chiropractors do just that!
