Corrective Exercises and Therapies
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These corrective exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Chiropractors are NOT physical therapists but in some states are able to perform and are trained in exercises, stretching and other forms of physical therapy. In our Schaumburg office we have a strong focus in corrective exercises and therapy for the spine but we also may be able to help you with conditions such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, knee pain, and headaches.
Please call (847) 884-8488 to learn more.

Here are a few Testimonials about our Corrective Exercise services:
"Dr. Martinez saved me after I spent weeks trying to deny that I was struggling with back pain. I let it get to the point where I couldn't sit or walk upright. Very last minute and in tons of pain, I called Dr. Martinez to get an appointment. He went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did he ensure that I was seen immediately, but he also realized and treated my issue right away. I felt so comfortable, respected and safe working with Dr. Martinez. His honest, approachable personality made asking for help, which is pretty hard for me at times, easy. Thank you, Dr. Martinez. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone I know."
