Spinal Correction Care Videos
Home Reahabilitation Intro
The specific spinal correction offered in our clinic consists of three vital components: our spinal adjustment procedure, in-clinic rehabilitation and at-home rehabilitation exercises. In the clinic, our doctor and staff will administer your adjustment and guide you through the in-clinic rehabilitation process. But what comes next-bar none-is the real difference maker in your spinal health. Nothing can replace your commitment to improvement. Your at-home exercises are crucial to building the muscles that stabilize your vertebrae, and keep your spine healthy long-term.
Remember, we are a team. And the most successful teams are those that work together
Cervical Traction Exercise
This exercise is essential to removing abnormalities in the cervical spine as well as preventing degeneration of the vertebrae in your neck. Dr. Tony Nalda demonstrates how to safely use the cervical traction door unit.
Wobble Chair Exercise
Spinal Sleeping Aids
To begin your at-home rehabilitation you'll first be introduced to wobble chair exercises. The wobble chair is typically an inflatable disc that simply sits on your chair or table. We'll demonstrate how to warm up your entire spine through each plane of motion using this simple, yet super effective tool.
We'll demonstrate the proper use of your sleeping aids and pelvic wedges. This system of supports helps maintain the necessary natural curves of your spine. At night, your nervous system actually becomes more active. Use your doctor-prescribed supports and wedges to get the most out of every adjustment procedure.
This video explains and demonstrates the use of pelvic support wedges to strengthen and stabilize your cervical and lumbar spinal bones. This exercise is essential to maintaining the proper alignment of your spine.
Cervical Extension Exercise
Chest Expander Exercise
Here we will demonstrate the cervical extension exercise. The goal of this exercise is to strengthen and stabilize the bones and muscles in your neck to prevent them from shifting out of place. We will also show some common mistakes in form to help keep you injury-free.
The chest expander exercise is used to correct subluxations in the upper thoracic and lower cervical spine. We'll teach you the proper form to hold for 60 seconds to successfully and safely complete this exercise.
Praying Mantis Exercise
Psoas Stretch: Left Side
This torso stretching exercise focuses on strengthening your thoracic spine. For maximum effect, hold this position for 60 seconds.
Lumbar Extension Exercise
This exercise helps you improve subluxations in your pelvic region. By completing this exercise properly, you can stabilize and prevent future subluxations from occurring.
Quadratus Lumborum: Left Side
This exercise targets the lumbar vertebrae in your low back. Perform this exercise properly and you will accentuate the essential curve in your lower spine while stabilizing your lumbar vertebrae.
Pit Ball/Arm Squeeze Exercise
This exercise uses two support blocks and a pelvic wedge. It strengthens the lowest portions of your spine, the lumbar vertebrae. This exercise targets one side of your body at a time.
The pit ball/arm squeeze exercise strengthens and stabilizes your thoracic vertebrae. It is very simple to perform. Simply position the wedge under your arm, then squeeze, hold, relax and repeat.
