Rehabilitative Exercise

Henderson Chiropractic Center

Rehabilitative exercise, also known as therapeutic exercise, is a type of physical activity that helps individuals recover from an injury, illness, or surgery. It is a critical part of the rehabilitation process, as it aims to restore an individual’s physical function and mobility.

Henderson Chiropractic Center are expertly trained to tailor these exercises to a patient’s specific needs and goals. The exercises may include stretching, strengthening, balance, and coordination exercises, and they may be performed in a supervised setting or at home.

How it makes your body stronger

Rehabilitative exercise can make your body stronger in several ways:

Improving muscle strength and endurance: Rehabilitative exercise focuses on strengthening muscles that have been weakened due to injury, illness, or surgery. By gradually increasing the load and intensity of exercises, muscles become stronger and more resilient, improving endurance and reducing the risk of future injury.

Restoring joint flexibility and range of motion: Following an injury or surgery, joints may become stiff and lose their range of motion. Rehabilitative exercise includes stretching and mobility exercises that help restore flexibility and range of motion to affected joints, reducing pain and improving function.

Enhancing balance and coordination: Rehabilitative exercise may include exercises that improve balance and coordination, helping to prevent falls and improve functional abilities.

Reducing pain and inflammation: Rehabilitative exercise can help reduce pain and inflammation, which are common following an injury or surgery. Certain exercises, such as gentle stretching and low-impact activities, can help reduce pain and inflammation while still promoting healing.

Improving cardiovascular health: Depending on the individual’s goals and abilities, rehabilitative exercise may include aerobic exercise, which can improve cardiovascular health and overall fitness.
