Why are exercises fundamental in Physical therapies?
Gregory Beale

Exercises are an important component of physical therapy for several reasons:

  • Improving strength and flexibility: Physical therapy exercises are designed to target specific muscle groups and joints, helping to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion. This can help patients to regain their ability to perform daily activities, such as walking, climbing stairs, or reaching overhead.
  • Reducing pain: Physical therapy exercises can help to reduce pain by improving muscle strength and flexibility, which can take pressure off of joints and reduce inflammation.
  • Improving balance and coordination: Physical therapy exercises can help to improve balance and coordination, which can reduce the risk of falls and injury.
  • Improving cardiovascular and respiratory function: Physical therapy exercises can also improve cardiovascular and respiratory function, which can help to improve overall health and well-being.
  • Rehabilitation: Physical therapy exercises are designed to help patients recover from injuries, surgeries, and other conditions by addressing the specific needs of each individual patient.
  • Maintaining and Improving physical function: Physical therapy exercises can help patients to maintain their physical function and prevent future injuries, by keeping the body strong and flexible.
  • Improving mental health: Physical therapy exercises have been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, by reducing stress and anxiety, and improving mood and self-esteem.

Overall, physical therapy exercises play an essential role in the recovery and rehabilitation process, and are an important part of maintaining physical health and well-being.
