Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise refers to a wide range of physical activities that focus on restoring and maintaining strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and balance. The goal of therapeutic exercises is to return an injured patient to a fully functioning, pain-free state. They can also prevent loss of function and enhance a patient’s functional capabilities. If you need to prevent and decrease impairment and disability, therapeutic exercises might be very helpful at improving your overall health status, fitness and sense of well-being.

Types of Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises are classified according to the aim and purpose of the exercises into many types:

  • A range of motion exercises which aim to maintain and increase a range of motion as traditional ROM exercises (passive, active and active assisted ROM exercises) and techniques of joint mobilization and soft tissue stretching.
