We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique condition. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific, Professionally designed therapies, exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping you reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.

Pain is the body's way of telling us that something is not as it should be. Either soft tissue has been injured by something we've done or that has been done to us, or the source is in injury to the nerves that connect the limbs, muscles and tissues of the body to the brain. All of these nerves must function as nature intended, otherwise something doesn't work right or the body will alert us there is a problem with signals we feel as pain. The medical discipline known as "Physical Therapy" works hand in hand with the various modalities of Chiropractic Therapy to discover and correct the injury at its source, whether soft tissue damage or nerve interruption. For this reason, Mid America Spine and Rehab proudly provides Certified Physical Therapy as one approach to pain treatment for our patients.
