This is the concept that he applies to every patient that step through his door. The goal Tompkins Chiropractic is to give the patient the tools to develop and maintain optimal function and movement to stay out of pain and prevent injury. Dr. Matt wants to eliminate or minimize chronic pain and injury from each patient that he sees. An integral part of achieving that goal is through teaching active therapeutic exercise. It is through therapeutic exercise sessions that we can re-educate muscles to move in the way they were meant to move and even out muscle imbalances through strengthening and stretching. Therapeutic exercise is the tool that we use to correct and maintain the functional and muscle imbalances that are discovered in the postural and functional screenings done in the initial exam.
