A chiropractic rehabilitation specialist is a medical professional who has had extensive postgraduate training in rehabilitation and physiologic therapeutics to help treat injuries or diseases that impact the functional abilities in one’s daily life, work or recreational activities. Relevant impairments, such as flexibility, strength and endurance are often intermediate goals of rehabilitation, but the ultimate goal is to restore patients back to their original condition prior to the onset of disease or injury.
