Health Pro's that Can Help Guide You
Team work makes the Dream Work!
If you need to tailor our stretches to your needs, various health or fitness professionals can help.
Here is a brief description of the skills offered by, and training required of, the different types of experts.
Doctors of Chiropractic
Anyone who has ever visited a chiropractor knows the importance of stretching. Surely almost every chiropractic doctor will recommend stretching as part of your daily routine, in order to keep your muscles and spine limber and keep the blood flowing.
When an adjustment is performed, the blood circulates and patients must maintain this between visits. If your chiropractor has not discussed at-home stretching in detail or you have gotten a bit rusty, then you're not getting the full benefit of your chiropractic adjustment.
Physiatrists (Physical Medicine Doctor)
Physiatrists, also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, are board-certified medical doctors who specialize in treating nerve, muscle, and bone conditions. They are among the sports medicine specialists who can diagnose and treat conditions and injuries that affect how you move, such as back problems, knee or shoulder injuries, debilitating arthritis or obesity, and stroke.
Physical therapists (PTs) help people with health conditions or injuries affecting muscles, joints, bones, or nerves by providing hands-on treatment and individualized exercise programs to restore movement in painful or debilitating conditions, or after an injury. Their expertise can be valuable, for instance, if you have suffered a lingering sprain or are recovering from a hip replacement or heart attack. Some PTs specialize in sports medicine, orthopedics, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, geriatrics, or other areas.
Personal trainers are fitness specialists who can help ensure that you’re doing stretches and exercises properly. While encouraging and motivating you, they can fine-tune your form. Personal trainers teach new skills, change up routines to beat boredom, and safely push you to the next level.
