One of the most noticeable benefits of chiropractic care is the optimization in a patient’s range of motion. Chiropractic care places a high emphasis on the joint health of a patient.

There are therapies and treatments that chiropractors may decide to use to improve a patient’s range of motion including CMT and soft tissue therapy. Your chiropractor may also prescribe several exercises for you to complete at home to improve joint health. These types of exercises can help maintain the range of motion you already have, increase flexibility in the joint and complete your daily routine without pain.
Reduction of Pain
