Exercise rehabilitation helps to improve flexibility and balance
Flexibility is the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe the range of motion in a muscle or joint. Balance is the condition of stability in the body. Both are vital to maintaining a sound body. It can be difficult for the body to maintain balance and flexibility over time, regardless if you are injured or not; the body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing the body off-balance just from daily activities. Along with physiotherapy, these rehabilitative exercises improve flexibility and balance and build muscle strength, ultimately aiding in recovery.
