Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk
Many people with chronic and acute spine-related and extremity disorders and joint stiffness, tightness, neck, shoulder, and leg complaints, and other musculoskeletal conditions or injuries have benefited from physical exercise. After consistent stretching and exercise, many people experience less pain, increased flexibility, and improvement in other symptoms, and are able to return to their normal physical activities at home and work. The goal of the website and content is to improve and normalize the quality of life and to promote you to adopt healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and good nutrition, and assist you during the recovery process. Rejecting such care may lead to progression of pain and other symptoms that limit your ability to perform activities at home and work.
There are various types of professional health care options for those who have your type of condition(s), including; physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, or seeking care from a medical doctor. While uncommon, some people may experience a short-term increase of pain and other symptoms or muscle and ligament strains or sprains as a result of physical exercise. There are some uncommon and rare potential serious risks to physical exercise, including, but not limited to, strains, sprains, fractures, disc injuries, dislocations, nerve injuries, and strokes.
