Role of Therapeutic Exercise in Physical Therapy

Therapeutic exercise plays an important role in your physical therapy journey. Exercise is one of the most important things you can do on your road to recovery and living an overall healthy lifestyle.

Therapeutic exercise improves range of motion mobilizes joints and improves coordination and balance.

Therapeutic Exercise and Mental Health

Therapeutic Exercise and Immune System

Therapeutic exercise and mental health go hand in hand. Not only will you benefit from physical improvements, but therapeutic exercises can help improve your mood, stress levels, anxiety, focus levels, and self-esteem.

This is due to the fact that exercise pumps up your endorphins and increases mental alertness. Some patients may notice an improvement in sleeping patterns as well.

Therapeutic Exercise for Specific Conditions

Therapeutic exercise can help aid in the recovery from illness, injury, trauma, stroke or paralysis. By creating a customized exercise plan that targets your specific condition, therapeutic exercise can help restore your strength and mobility.

These exercises will target the exact location of your aches and pains and increase your blood flow, leading to faster recovery times.

Therapeutic Exercise and Immune System

Therapeutic Exercises can improve your immune system by maintaining a healthy body weight, reducing inflammation, and increasing circulation. Having excess body fat lowers your immunity and makes it harder for the body to fight off infections.

Exercise can help fight off the fat, boosting your immunity. Inflammation in the body can weaken your immunity, making it difficult for the body to fight off bacteria and viruses. Exercise may help reduce this inflammation.

Increased circulation can also boost your immunity because it allows your immune cells to circulate to any part of the body, as needed.

Conclusion

Overall, therapeutic exercise is a key component of your rehabilitation program. With benefits including increased blood circulation, improved strength and balance and increased range of motion, therapeutic exercise can aid in your road to recovery.
