No one likes being confined to the bed with an injury or pain caused by chronic ailments. But, when you are suffering from mobility constraints caused by an injury, you have to refrain from doing regular chores or any other strenuous physical activity. Exercise therapy is an alternative recovery therapy that works around your injury while indulging you in light exercises performed according to a predetermined design. The therapy has been proven to be beneficial physically as well as mentally for patients causing an overall improvement in health status.
What is exercise therapy?
Exercise therapy is a treatment technique which follows a regimen or plan of physical activities (of varying intensity) to reach some set health goals such as achieving motor functions in an injured part or reduction of pain. To relieve patients from injuries, exercise therapy is used as a mechanism to stimulate the injured part and forcing it towards favorable changes. Exercise therapy is a rather slow treatment therapy visible effects are observed only after 1-2 months of regular exercises as prescribed by the therapist.
