Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are a wide range of exercises that focuses on restoring and preserving strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and balance. The goal of healing exercises is to return an injured patient to a fully functioning, pain-free state.

A physical therapist starts by conducting an extensive examination of a person's physical capabilities with both a case history and physical assessment. The physical therapist then utilizes his/her understanding to shape a treatment care strategy consisting of a slowly-progressing exercise program that is appropriate to each person's needs. The physical therapist keeps track of development, assists with some physical motions, and continuously modifies the strategy as the customer recovers.

The first objective of therapeutic workout is to help the body reduce discomfort and inflammation. As soon as this is accomplished, the workout program focuses on regaining array of motion and rebuilding muscle strength and stamina. Exercises that might be consisted of in a restorative program include:

Balance and coordination exercises that focus on preserving an individual's center of gravity.

Endurance works out that engage large muscle groups over a longer time frame.

Strengthening workouts, generally performed with heavy resistance and few repetitions.
