Dr. Adam Meisenhelder of Back In Motion Chiropractic & Sports Rehab in Beaverton, Oregon demonstrates Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) of the spine. This is a great drill to use as a warm-up prior to exercise, and will both increase spinal mobility and decrease your overall injury risk.
Rehabilitation of joint injuries takes on many forms, with an ever-growing body of exercises and "systems" guiding the clinician. Rehab gurus and daily blogs provide an endless collection of mobility and stability drills to get you back in action and presumably prevent another injury. As a sports physician, I am challenged every day to create rehab plans custom tailored to meet the specific demands of my unique patients, and I wanted to share my approach, and the approach of the Back In Motion Chiropractic & Physical Therapy team in Beaverton, Oregon, to provide a better understanding of why we do what we do.
