How Does Therapeutic Exercise Work?

Therapeutic exercise involves targeted activities that help relieve pain and recondition physical movement and function. Therapists can also use exercise techniques to prevent further impairment or disability. Various therapeutic exercises can target a patient’s specific needs, whether the focus is endurance, strength, stability or flexibility.

Some therapeutic exercises include:

You can receive therapeutic exercise treatment to target a specific injured site, such as a shoulder. Your physical therapist could assign therapeutic exercises for your injured shoulder to help you regain mobility and reduce pain. Similarly, a patient with a knee injury can also benefit from therapeutic exercise treatment. There are many therapeutic exercises for knees that can help improve movement and stability.
