Physical Rehabilitation Therapy

Rehabilitation and physical therapy are used to regain optimal function following an injury. At Vitality Healthcare in Portage, our goal is to restore strength, flexibility, endurance, and power through the use of a variety of physical therapy exercises and drills. Rehabilitation is as important as chiropractic treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked.

The Portage area physical therapists at Vitality Healthcare teach our patients special “blueprint” rehabilitation exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. With physical therapy and rehabilitation from Vitality Healthcare in Portage, you’ll learn specific exercises and stretches which can help your body stay in balance and in good health.
