Man doing exercisesIn addition to natural chiropractic, many care plans include functional-based exercises to enhance recovery. Athletes striving for peak performance, seniors looking to maintain mobility, or parents aiming to keep up with the daily demands of life may all benefit from adding these exercises to their programs. Even children above the age of five can see positive results.

Patients at Denver Gonstead have a personalized experience that starts with understanding their goals and needs. Our experienced chiropractor guides them through the exercises, focusing on the mechanics, proper posture, and form to ensure everyone gets the most out of each movement.

Understanding the Importance of Exercise

Functional exercises are more than just a workout; it’s a way of life. They’re based on more primitive movements that closely mimic daily activities, like bending to pick up a child, carrying groceries, or even swinging a golf club.

These functional movement patterns fall into six key categories: squat, lunge, hinge, push, pull, and carry. Adding in rotation can enhance any of these exercises. Unlike traditional workouts, our techniques align seamlessly with the body’s natural motions, ensuring better results and optimal performance.

Our approach is incredibly versatile, making it suitable for individuals of all ages and fitness levels. From elite athletes seeking to maximize their athletic potential to seniors aiming to maintain their independence and improve their quality of life, we tailor our functional exercises to meet their unique needs.
