Trying To Boost Your Physical Activity? Therapeutic Exercise Could Be Your Saving Grace!

Have you been looking for a way to boost your physical activity while still reducing your pain symptoms? Therapeutic exercise is an excellent way to regain function and live pain-free!

Therapeutic exercise is a safe and easy way for patients of all ages to achieve pain relief, and the physiotherapists at Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness are proud to provide it in our Airdrie clinic.

Often people presume that someone who is doing physiotherapy is recovering from surgery. That isn’t always the case, however. Anyone who wants to regain their stamina, agility, flexibility, or equilibrium will benefit from physiotherapy!

Benefits of therapeutic exercise

Physiotherapy and therapeutic exercise can be used as a treatment for any pain, injury, or ailment someone may be facing. Exercise plans are designed to improve your fitness and help you do better than you have in the past. Our aim at Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness is to get your power back to where it was before, if not higher!

Therapeutic exercise is similar to exercise plans in that it involves tailored exercises aimed at relieving inflammation and returning the body’s activity to its optimal state.

When faced with such physical risks, therapeutic exercise may also be used to avoid further impairment or disability.

There is a wide variety of therapeutic exercises and each one has a unique purpose. These include:

Coordination and Balance Exercises

You put the muscle and skeletal structures in your body to the test any time you rise, walk, rest, brush your teeth, prepare a meal, or go about your everyday activities.

You lose your ability to look out for yourself and keep yourself safe if you can’t maintain your balance! If you don’t have control over your body, you put yourself at risk for falls and injuries.

Your ability to care for yourself or your loved ones depends on your ability to balance and coordinate your arms, legs, hands, and feet. That is why balance and coordination exercises are so important, especially after an injury or illness.

Relaxation Exercises

Although it’s vital to exercise the body’s muscles, joints, and soft tissues, it’s also crucial to help them relax and release.

Even if sleeping when you’re in pain isn’t necessarily the ideal way to deal with it, relaxing will help your body to begin the recovery process.

Heat, ice, electrotherapy, massage, or trigger point therapy are all pain-relieving therapies that can help the body recover, boost sleep, reduce blood pressure, and keep you going back to the gym for more exercise!

Area-Specific Exercises

It’s easy to think of exercise as something we do with our muscles, but exercise can also help our body’s other systems. Exercises that are focused on your arms, legs, or back are all examples of area-specific exercises!

Range of Motion Exercises

These kinds of exercises are aimed at increasing the range of motion in your joints and soft tissues.

This may be done through active, passive, or assisted stretching activities designed to help your joints move better, without pain.

Posture Exercises

You may not know it, but posture has a direct effect on muscle power, coordination, and injury risk.

Hours spent at desks, leaning over keyboards, poor muscle tone, and poor posture patterns may all result in discomfort or disability.

Posture exercises help to relieve aches and pains by correcting bad posture not just during training but also in everyday tasks.

Muscle Performance Exercises

Increasing power, endurance, and muscle strength are vital to good balance and stability, as well as bone and joint health.

Resistance and endurance exercises are designed to increase muscle strength without injury.


How can physiotherapy help improve my wellbeing

It is a common belief that when one is in pain, one should only rest and relax. When you’ve sustained an injury, it’s normal to want to lay down or go to bed, but this will cause the muscles to weaken or atrophy during the recovery process. In the long term, this will lead to reduced functionality and increased discomfort.

The good news is that physiotherapy in our Airdrie clinic can help you. Our physiotherapists are movement experts, trained in improving strength, range of motion, and overall function of the body.

At Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness, our goal is to help you live a pain-free life with even greater strength and endurance than you had before.

Area-specific exercises target breathing and circulation to help speed healing, improve blood flow, and lower stress on the body.

Our physiotherapists will create an individualized recovery schedule for you that includes therapeutic interventions to relieve pain, improve vulnerable parts of the body, facilitate recovery, and achieve optimal levels of function.
