Functional Rehabilitation

functional rehabAt Eaton Chiropractic and Rehab, we understand that while restoration of joint mobility is extremely important in the healing process, there is another component to achieving success and restoring normal function to the body.

The initial examination is designed to explore the anatomical source of pain and to also identify dysfunctional muscle firing patterns, supporting muscular weakness, and shortened muscle systems. Results from this examination will help Dr. Eaton develop an individualized functional rehabilitation plan for each patient designed to restore muscle length and strengthen or activate supporting musculature. This approach allows the patient to have an active role in the healing process and promotes long-term relief of symptoms.

The goal is to identify and restore joint mobility using spinal manipulation, strengthen around that joint complex, and address any underlying muscular dysfunction that may have led to the initial injury.
