Therapeutic Exercises at Home

One thing that sets chiropractors apart from other health care professionals is their holistic view of the body.  Instead of dividing the body into its various systems and functions, the chiropractic profession views the body as a whole with each system being mutually dependent on the other.  To accomplish this, our team at Birmingham Health not only address bony misalignments to ensure proper nervous system function, but also provide information on diet, exercise, and healthy living in general.  This article will concentrate on various therapeutic exercises in Hoover that you can incorporate into your care.
