Therapeutic Exercises and Stretches
Compass Chiropractic is prepared to serve the Des Moines area's needs for therapeutic exercises and stretches. Dr. Krohse has built a reputation for effectively reducing patients' pain as well as enabling them to stay stable. Since muscles stabilize joints, the key to long term stability is making sure that all the muscles of the body are working properly. A thorough examination helps Dr. Krohse determine exactly which muscles are weak and which are tight and shortened. When a patient is out of severe pain, Dr. Krohse will recommend and guide the patient in implementing a program of specific exercises and stretches to address those muscle imbalances. Long term stability is the goal. In the case of a severe injury, Dr. Krohse may make a referral to a local Des Moines physical therapist for more structured rehabilitation of injured muscles.
