Balance and Coordination Training: The first ability to be lost in an injury and the last ability to return when treating and injury, balance and coordination is one of the most important neurologic functions in our body. Through the use of specific balance equipment from advance vibration plates to simple stability pads, balance and coordination deficits can be corrected and re-educated in the most simplistic of activities like rising from a chair to return to competitive sports. Balance and coordination training is critical for all ages and physical abilities and when corrected and decrease the risk of falls and re-injury in sports or work-related activities.
Balance and coordination imbalance can develop from trauma, disease, injury, and aging. Losing your balance or feeling uncoordinated on the field of play may be warning signs of potential injury.
Exercise Rehabilitation: At Bergen Chiropractic and Sports Rehabilitation Center, all your exercise is closely monitored by our skilled clinicians and uniquely designed to your abilities and injuries.
Rehabilitation is a group of physical methods, procedures, and exercises designed to improve function and stability following and illness or injury. Rehabilitation is critical in remodeling soft tissue injuries and is critical for the alignment of fibroblast (cells that produce collagen) as well as proper collagen synthesis into a proper repaired tissue.
Rehabilitation is different from exercise as its goal is to heal and remodel injured tissue as well as stabilize the patient so they can return to a pre-injury exercise or athletic endeavors. As will most treatments at Bergen Chiropractic and Sports Rehabilitation Center, the primary goal of Rehabilitation is getting the patient back to an independent state releasing the patient with a specifically designed home exercise program for during treatment and post-treatment success.
Rehabilitation programs are designed to improve the overall function of the patient including flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, and endurance of the tissue. Rehabilitation programs should be continued upon discharge of the patient to assist in the prevention of re-injury.
