All ‘Rehab’ Exercise is NOT Created Equal

It’s all too often that I hear, “I went for ___ and it didn’t work.”

And my answer to this is usually, “Realize that all __ aren’t created equal.”

Whether it’s strength training, physical therapy, or chiropractic, it’s simply not ALL created equal.

This was proved to me even further this week after reading this study.

(If you don’t like reading research papers, don’t worry about the link above..I’ll explain the takeaways below)

The study compared ‘traditional’ physical therapy to some more advanced abdominal strength exercises as well as specific range of motion exercises.

And as you may have guessed, the advanced exercises showed a significant improvement over the ‘traditional’ physical therapy.

What does this mean for us?

It means that we all need to be very careful to say, “I tried that, it didn’t work.”

Because it’s not all created equal.

So if you have tried physical therapy or chiropractic, realize that each and every one is not created equal.

You may just need to try something different!

If you know someone who has ‘tried’ everything, we STILL may be able to help. In fact, it happens all the time.

Please let them know about us. It’s easy to get in contact with us too! They can just email me and I would be happy to answer and of their questions!
