Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting specific problems.
Depending on the nature of your problem, your chiropractor may prescribe a set of exercises to help you feel better. Therapeutic exercise aims to improve flexibility, strength, and endurance in those with specific physical issues.
Therapeutic exercise aims to improve, restore, and prevent loss of physical function. It can also improve a patient’s overall health, fitness, and sense of well-being.
Additional objectives of therapeutic exercise include:
- Increasing mobility
- Releasing contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
- Mobilizing joints
- Improving circulation
- Improving respiratory capacity
- Improving coordination
- Reducing rigidity
- Improving balance
Therapeutic exercises are classified into three major categories:
- Endurance training
- Resistance training
- Flexibility training
The ultimate objective of rehabilitation, regardless of the sort of exercise prescribed to treat a patient's unique issue, is to achieve optimum physical fitness without the necessity of intrusive procedures. Therapeutic exercise may be done at home and provides you control over your quality of life.
