Therapeutic exercises aim to give various benefits to athletes, people who have recently had surgery, people who have had an accident that restricts movement, and anyone who has issues with musculoskeletal functions. These benefits could include:
Recovery from sports-related injuries – injuries sustained during sports and other heavy-duty physical activities can be treated using exercises. Physical therapy can also be used to prevent injuries in athletes.
Reduction or elimination of pain – therapeutic exercises can also be used to help treat achy joints and painful muscles. Manual therapy techniques like soft tissue and joint mobilization can help relieve stiffness and pain and keep aches from returning.
