Frequently Asked Questions

What is "Core Rehab" anyway?
Core Rehab is a program designed by our physicians at Modern Health and Wellness in order to accomplish two major goals with our patients. The first goal, is to relearn how to move correctly so that a current injury can heal and so that injuries are prevented in the future! We focus on teaching habits or movement patterns that can be translated into everyday life, and improving our patients confidence of moving. The second major goal is to STRENGTHEN the muscle systems that support our body once we have established how our body should move. Strengthening includes more than just motion based weight training, as we also incorporate postural training, flexibility training, and stability training.
