What are Home Exercise Programs?
Home exercise programs shouldn’t take up too much time and do not require a health club membership or expensive equipment. You might even achieve more with a consistent 5 to 10 minute program performed 3 to 5 times per week than with an hour-long workout at a gym. It has shown that manual therapies like chiropractic and dry needling are more effective in conjunction with corrective exercise and will also help to prevent reoccurrence of pain. Dr. Chase Horton has worked in the field of exercise physiology for many years and designs home exercise programs for all patients. He uses low intensity corrective exercises, many of which look like yoga postures, to restore the healthy function of your muscles and joints.

Benefits of Home Exercise Programs
Reduce PainCorrective exercises can help make any pain that you are experiencing go away and stay away. These exercises will strengthen and correct the irregularities of your body which may be causing your pain.
Improve Range MotionIf you don't use it, you lose it, right? This applies to your muscles, joints, and your ability to complete basic movements like a squat or a pushup. When joints are not taken through a full range of motion on a regular basis they become stiff and week, resulting in pain, tension, and immobility. The good news is that it is never to late to start using your joints again and the best place to start is with a home exercise program made up of foundational posture correcting exercises.
Improve PostureAccording to the American Journal of Pain Management “Posture effects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production.” Bad postural habits can result in spinal pain, headache, abnormal blood pressure or pulse, and even reduced lung capacity.” Dr. Chase Horton designs corrective exercise programs to help your body return to its ideal posture and prevent pain and injury from recurring.
