Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting specific problems. Previous injuries, patient goals and other information will be taken into account. After undergoing a Functional Movement Screening, a couple of exercises will be given initially and then exercises will be added on to each subsequent visit. The focus of therapeutic exercise is to regain flexibility, strength, and endurance related to specific physical problems.

Therapeutic exercise aims to improve, restore, and prevent loss of physical function. It can also improve a patient’s overall health, fitness, and sense of well­-being.

Additional objectives of Therapeutic exercise include:

  • Increasing mobility
  • Improving balance
  • Improving coordination
  • Improving circulation
  • Improving respiratory capacity
  • Mobilizing joints
  • Reducing rigidity
  • Releasing contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia


Therapeutic exercises are classified into three major categories:

  • Endurance training
  • Resistance training
  • Flexibility training


No matter what type of exercise is prescribed to remedy a patient’s specific condition, the final goal of rehabilitation is to acquire a maximum level of physical fitness, without the use of more invasive methods. Therapeutic exercise can be performed at home, and gives you the power to improve your quality of life.
