Stretching is extremely important in the early stage of treatment. Dr. Kiefer uses active and passive muscle techniques that will reduce muscles spasms, however, there are exercises you can do to keep the area loose between visits. If the affected areas are not adequately stretched between treatments, the muscles will remain tight and rigid thus prolonging recovery time. It is important to stay ACTIVE with your treatment.
Dr. Kiefer utilizes a functional movement approach to exercise rehabilitation geared toward improving balance, strengthening core muscle groups and increasing muscle function and endurance. The goal of rehab and conditioning in our clinic is an individualized, brief series of exercises, designed for the specific patient. Compliance rates are high with our patients because we ensure that our patients understand the purpose of their exercises and how those exercises help to bring both short-term and long-term relief of symptoms.
The design of our rehabilitation is for instructions to given in the clinic to prepare the patients to perform at home with simple equipment such as gym balls, exercise tubing, and balance equipment.
