Therapeutic Exercise

Tabra with Patient

Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting specific problems. Depending the matter of your concern, your chiropractor may give you a list of exercises to perform to reduce discomfort. The focus of therapeutic exercise is to regain flexibility, strength, and endurance related to specific physical problems.

Therapeutic exercise aims to improve, restore, and prevent loss of physical function. It can also improve a patient’s overall health, fitness, and sense of well­-being.

Retraining the muscle-nerve connection is best following the chiropratic adjustment as the nervous system is more open to forming new neuropathways (neuroplasticity) to accelerate muscle training and increase better, more balcnced muscle memory.

Additional objectives of Therapeutic exercise include:

  • Increasing mobility
  • Releasing contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
  • Mobilizing joints
  • Improving circulation
  • Improving respiratory capacity
  • Improving coordination
  • Reducing rigidity
  • Improving balance


Therapeutic exercises are classified into three major categories:

  • Endurance training
  • Resistance training
  • Flexibility training

No matter what type of exercise is prescribed to remedy a patient’s specific condition, the final goal of rehabilitation is to acquire a maximum level of physical fitness, without the use of more invasive methods. Therapeutic exercise can be performed at home, and gives you the power to improve your quality of life.

  • "I began to develop symptoms of what would eventually turn into a frozen shoulder. I tried time off, pain medications, physical therapy, and threats of surgery - all to no avail. Then, my naturopath recommended that I see Dr. Bobby Jones. I began treatment in November and began to see improvement almost immediately. I am no longer being woken by pain and I have almost no pain during the day; my range of motion has dramatically increased. I am confident that I will regain full use of my shoulder without surgery, thanks to Dr. Jones. He is highly skilled, extremely intuitive, and up-to-date on all the latest techniques. It has been a joy to work with him and I plan to be a patient of his indefinitely."

  • "Until I found Dr. Bobby Jones, no one seemed to be able to give me a reasonable diagnosis or treatment that could help reverse my escalating difficulties in walking. Dr. Bobby Jones' adjustments have kept me from going back to using an electric scooter, which I had been dependent on for a year! Dr. Jones first adjusted my pelvis and after only one treatment, I was able to walk through the airports almost pain-free, without having to use the wheelchair service. Six months later, I am still walking well, gaining muscle strength and physical endurance because of Bobby's expertise and willing partnership in my quest for health. I'm even able to go dancing sometimes! As a chiropractic physician, Dr. Jones not only has good skills, but also has a wonderful, caring "can do" approach to problems his patients face. I would highly recommend him to anyone."

  • "I have been going to see Dr. Bobby Jones for almost three years now. My doctor referred me to him when I hurt my lower back at work; it hurt to walk. I was nervous to go see a chiropractor - the thought of someone cracking my bones freaked me out. I went to see him and immediately felt that I was important, and that it was important to Dr. Jones that I got better, and quickly. I explained to Dr. Jones my hesitations about this type of treatment and also what was hurting. He listened and he told me about the Activator Method and how he could do the adjustments without it being as "scary" as the manual adjustment. I felt so much better after my first adjustment. I could walk without incredible pain. Dr. Jones has gone above and beyond any expectation I have had for a health care provider. I feel very at ease having Dr. Jones do my adjustments. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I have walked in there having a bad day and left with a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend Dr. Jones!"

  • "My husband has had acid reflux for four years. He takes an over the counter drug, with many side affects. Dr. Jones suggested he take enzymes instead. It has been two weeks and he has no more acid reflux. It is unbelievable. He can't believe it was that easy."

  • "Thank you so much for the comfort and relief. Not only do I love coming to your office for restoration of physical health, but also for the friendship, community, and emotional health. The difference after just one visit is amazing. Thank you so much for everything - I look forward to my next visit."
