Home Rehabilitation Intro

The specific spinal correction offered in our clinic consists of three vital components: our spinal adjustment procedure, in-clinic rehabilitation and at-home rehabilitation exercises. In the clinic, our doctor and staff will administer your adjustment and guide you through the in-clinic rehabilitation process. But what comes next—bar none—is the real difference maker in your spinal health. Nothing can replace your commitment to improvement. Your at-home exercises are crucial to building the muscles that stabilize your vertebrae, and keep your spine healthy long-term.

Remember, we are a team. And the most successful teams are those that work together.

Wobble Chair Exercise

To begin your at-home rehabilitation you’ll first be introduced to wobble chair exercises. The wobble chair is typically an inflatable disc that simply sits on your chair or table. We’ll demonstrate how to warm up your entire spine through each plane of motion using this simple, yet super effective tool.

Cervical Extension Exercise

Here we will demonstrate  the cervical extension exercise. The goal of this exercise is to strengthen and stabilize the bones and muscles in your neck to prevent them from shifting out of place. We will also show some common mistakes in form to help keep you injury-free.

Cervical Flexion Exercise

This home care exercise focuses on stabilizing and strengthening the vertebrae in your neck. Your neck contains each of the cervical vertebra that give it a natural curve, known as the “arc of life.” If you lose the curvature in your neck, your spinal cord damages and deteriorates as a result.

Components of Headweighting System

This video will show you how to configure your headweighting system. Please watch this video before you start your headweighting exercise. 

Head Weighting Exercise

PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE “Components of headweighting system” BEFORE YOU START THIS EXERCISE.

This exercise helps reestablish the cervical curve in your neck, which is essential to optimizing the function of your entire nervous system. Dr. Tony Nalda demonstrates how to use the head weighting equipment safely.

Cervical Traction Exercise

This exercise is essential to removing abnormalities in the cervical spine as well as preventing degeneration of the vertebrae in your neck. Dr. Tony Nalda demonstrates how to safely use the cervical traction door unit.

Sleeping Rolls and Pelvic Wedges

We’ll demonstrate the proper use of your sleeping rolls and pelvic wedges. This system of supports helps maintain the necessary natural curves of your spine. At night, your nervous system actually becomes more active. Use your doctor-prescribed supports and wedges to get the most out of every adjustment procedure.

Psoas Stretch

This stretch helps open and loosen your hips, which prevents subluxations in your pelvic regions. It also helps strengthen your spine.
