At Kendall Square Chiropractic, we recognize the importance of a home-based treatment regimen in conjunction with our office-based care.  A recent study conducted by the Medical Research Council, a research organization based in the United Kingdom, has found that patients given a combination of spinal manipulation and exercise experienced greater improvement in back function and greater reduction in pain compared to those treated with spinal manipulation or exercise only.  Each patient is given an individually based exercise program to help speed their recovery.
