ChiroCure Clinic Rehabilitation

​Rehabilitation from sports injuries, accident or chronic pain is not a one step process, but it doesn’t have to be as traumatic as you think!
At ChiroCure Clinic in StKilda, our practitioners don’t just treat your injuries we will work with you to make sure you receive a full recovery. Our Chiropractors and remedial therapists will offer rehabilitation in addition to treatment, aiming to decrease healing time, de-conditioning and increase self-reliance and muscular function (Triano, Mcgregor, Skogsbergh, 1997)

Our remedial massage practitioners, doctors of chiropractic and myotherapist’s offer patients help and advice to better manage their pain and injury. We offer supplement advice with practitioner prescriptions, nutrition and dietary care, lifestyle advice, work station assessment and more. Treatment with our Chiropractors or Remedial Therapists may also help to reduce the feeling of fatigue, exhaustion, sleeplessness and slow down spinal ageing, improve blood flow, restore nervous system function and reduces all pain symptoms.

What can exercise do for you?

• Strong Body – Exercise helps strengthens joints and muscles all over the body.
• Osteoporosis – Regular exercise promotes bone formation and can help prevent bone loss associated with aging.
• Balance – Exercise improves your balance, and good balance will certainly help you avoid future injuries.
• New Injuries – Exercise is essential for overcoming injuries. Injuries prevent you from using the affected or weakened area.
Rehabilitation exercises can help you to strengthen the body, and restore proper balance.
• Old Injuries – While timely rehabilitation is very important, exercise can also help in coming back from old injuries. 
This process will not happen as quickly as immediate rehabilitation, but is well worth the time spent.
• Proper Exercise – Before you start an exercise program, be sure to consult with ChiroCure practitioners. Some forms of exercise may slow down your rehabilitation, or even make your problem worse. Talk to Dr Tania Leski about rehabilitation rather than relying on the fitness staff at the local gym.
• Weight and Posture – Exercise helps you maintain a healthy weight. This, in turn, contributes to good posture and the lessening of unnecessary stress on the body.
Other Health Benefits – Regular exercise has been shown to improve many health areas, including: the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and depression.

This is only a small list of the benefits of exercise for health and rehabilitation. Consult with one of our chiropractors or remedial massage therapists, for advice about how to start or modify an exercise program that is tailored for your needs and optimal for spinal health.
