REHABILITATION EXERCISE BENFITS
Exercising daily plays a crucial role in the process of healing and recovering from injury. Stretching and strengthening activities, balance, joint control, and muscle re-training are types of important physical exercised involved in rehabilitation.
Hydrotherapy or pool therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a highly beneficial form of rehabilitation that is useful in a variety of medical conditions and injuries. Research provides high to moderate quality evidence supporting the effective benefit of hydrotherapy in pain, function, self-efficiency and affect, joint mobility, strength and balance management - particularly in subjects with rheumatic conditions and chronic lower back pain. Hydrotherapy decreased the amount of weight bearing which reduces the force of stress placed on the joints. This is useful for patients with workplace/TAC injuries, healing soft tissue, fractured bones and arthritis. The warm water also assists in relaxing muscles and vasodilates vessels, increasing blood flow to injured areas. Patients with muscle spasms, pack pain and fibromyalgia find this aspect quite therapeutic.
Gym rehabilitation in conjunction with hydrotherapy provides a more beneficial form of rehabilitation for clients. Strength training will assist with improving pain management, strengthening the injury and increasing endurance for functional tasks including walking, lifting, bending, flexibility and manual handling. Rehabilitation exercise benefits also includes enhancement of an individuals self-esteem, creating a healthier and happier person.
