Our Staten Island rehabilitation services are a natural complement to chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments correct the underlying mechanical misalignment that is triggering pain. Our rehab and corrective care exercises address the improper patterns of movement in the body that are a direct result of this mechanical misalignment. Together chiropractic care and rehab exercises support a healthy recovery process.
If you have sustained an injury, our rehabilitation physician Christopher Perez will begin with testing services to properly diagnose the extent of your injury. Our Staten Island rehabilitation testing services include Range of Motion (ROM) testing, Nerve Conduction Testing (NCV) and Electromyogram (EMG). ROM testing helps to diagnose the body parts associated with back pain, headaches, sore shoulders, nighttime calf cramps, mysofascial pain, and other post-injury pain conditions. Understanding where your body is experiencing a restricted range of movement – and consequently prone to pain – is essential to helping your body properly heal.
We offer a full range of rehabilitation exercises that are customized to each patient’s individual recovery needs. For example, if you suffer from shoulder or neck pain after a whiplash injury, it may be difficult to turn from side to side or look up and down. Corrective exercises can help bring a natural range of motion back to your neck. For patients with leg pain, foot pain or knee pain, Dr. Perez will work on strengthening the muscles and protecting the joints. We start with basic movements, like walking, and work towards jogging and running. Our strengthening exercises also incorporate balance, coordination and flexibility.
If injury pain is holding your back from being active, our rehab exercises can make a significant difference for your health. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Perez today and call us at 718-356-9222.
