- Cardiovascular conditioning.
- Muscle and joint flexibility/range of motion training.
- Muscle strength and endurance training.
Cardiovascular conditioning means strengthening the heart, the most important muscle of the body, and improving circulation through the veins and arteries of the circulatory system. Designing an aerobic exercise program, based on the health of the patient, will improve cardiovascular conditioning.
Improved muscle and joint flexibility/range of motion is achieved through stretching exercises. Designing a stretching program, based on the health of the patient, will improve muscle and joint function.
Improved muscle strength and endurance is achieved through floor exercises, weight training and the use of exercise elastic tubing. Designing a muscle strength and endurance program, based on the health of the patient, will improve muscle and joint function.
By improving muscle and joint function, the patient’s musculoskeletal pain, soreness, discomfort and stiffness is often alleviated or greatly reduced. The overall goal of an exercise therapy program is to improve health, and prevent further damage and injury to your body’s musculoskeletal system.
