To further strengthen the injured area, our doctor works with patients to provide specific exercise instruction to regain the strength and endurance to the injured body part.
Therapeutic Exercise is considered active care, and it is an integral part of getting auto accident patients back to their pre-injury status. At OKC Spine and Injury Relief Center, we have the network to refer out to an MRI or Medical Specialist to co-manage the injury.
