The “best” rehabilitation varies depending on your specific conditions. There are two types of rehabilitation: passive and active.

Passive rehabilitation

Passive rehabilitation is one of the first steps in rehab because these therapies help to reduce pain as well as inflammation. Passive therapies also help increase your range of motion and combat stiffness. 

Examples of passive rehabilitation include: 

Through the services of a professional therapist, they are performed on or for you. 

Active rehabilitation

On the other hand, active rehabilitation refers to exercises that you perform yourself. These exercises and therapies include: 

Active therapies help increase muscle strength and endurance while promoting a strong brain-body connection. Studies show that active rehabilitation plays a critical role in managing back pain.

Do you need one or the other?

At Premier Chiropractic, we work with you to help you achieve your goals. Depending on your needs and goals, you might need to choose between active and passive rehabilitation. You might benefit from a combination of both. In fact, both active and passive therapies complement each other to help you improve your range of motion, reduce stiffness and soreness, and grow stronger day by day.

You might require several sessions and as you become stronger, the types of therapies you need might change.
