Corrective Exercises & Rehabilitation
At Burghealth Chiropractic & Wellness, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health. Dr. Samuel Richards is a certified personal trainer through the ISFTA (International Sports Fitness Trainers Association), TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Medical Level 3 Certified, FMT Functional Movement Techniques) Certified, and SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) certified.

When people think of Rehab, they tend to think of doing big exercises that really gets a good workout. Well that's simply not how the body responds well to that stimulus. When strength training and you still have a dysfunction or instability you only reinforce the bodies current compensation and can build new ones as well. At Burghealth Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Samuel Richards breaks down rehab to it's simplest form, and works you through what is called the 4x4 matrix to build the foundation needed to create proper stability and motor control. and it all starts from the ground up.
When learning motor patterns as a child most of us crawled before we walked. Well before we crawled we first learned in a supine or prone position, and that's where is all begins. We work with you going though movement patterns with and without resistance to prevent compensations.
