Therapeutic exercise is a controlled physical stress applied to the body to help improve strength, range of motion or flexibility. Exercises can be passive (where your therapist applies the stress) or active (where you perform under your own power). Both play a crucial role in the process of healing and recovering from injury or disease.
Stretching and strengthening activities are two of the most popular physical therapy exercises. Balance, joint control, and muscle re-training are other important types.
Stretching tight muscles is an important way to prevent injury from occurring. It is also an important treatment technique in recovery. Building strong muscles is an important way to provide joint stability. Strengthening exercises are also important after sustaining injuries where weakness may have occurred after resting an affected limb.
