Therapeutic Exercise


Therapeutic exercises are movements and physical activities designed to restore function and flexibility, improve strength and decrease pain.

Therapeutic exercises are movements and physical activities designed to restore function and flexibility, improve strength and decrease pain. If you are receiving physical therapy for an injury or a chronic condition, your physical therapist may incorporate therapeutic exercises in your treatment plan.


3 Approaches:

  1. Active exercise is movement of a body part against gravity, or with additional weight for resistance.
  2. Active-assisted exercise is movement of a body part with help from another part of the body – using one arm to help lift the other, or with help from the therapist.
  3. Passive exercise fully relies on the therapist or another part of the patient’s body to lift the injured limb.
