stages of therapeutic exercises

Therapeutic exercises help patients avoid muscle stiffness and spasticity. These exercises also improve their blood flow, promoting healing and body function restoration. Here is how the exercises are classified by stages of activity:


Passive therapeutic exercises are for patients with minimum control of affected body areas. Exercises in this category are very simple and are done with the help of the therapist who guides the patient’s movement through a correct path. Patients who stay in sessions eventually regain strength and control which makes them suitable for the next group of exercises.


Active-assisted therapeutic exercises incorporate the use of weights to promote strength. Patients are still going to need assistance from the therapist, but they will start putting a little more effort into the movement.


This group of therapeutic exercises is performed by the patient alone. Examples include lifting weights or walking on a treadmill. Active exercises promote strength, endurance, and full control over the movement carried out during the exercise.

Types of therapeutic exercises

There are many types and classifications for therapeutic exercises. Here are the main ones, according to purpose:

Range of motion exercises.

These aim to maintain and increase flexibility in muscles and joints. Our therapist will assist and support you through the use of traditional range of motion exercises and techniques, such as joint mobilization and soft tissue stretching.

Strengthening exercises.

Strength is the base for movement. That is why we provide this type of exercise for each activity or movement our patients need to perform. We help you get stronger to enhance your mobility and prevent injuries.

Endurance exercises.

Endurance is tolerance to work through continuous movement, and it determines your performance on some activities. Training with therapeutic exercises for endurance helps build strength for those tasks we have to constantly do as a necessity, like walking or going upstairs. Athletes are a good example of patients needing this type of exercise.

Balance and coordination.

These exercises are designed to help patients maintain their center of gravity while performing specific movements and activities. It helps improve the body's coordination as well. Remember that good posture and coordination are key to performing correctly in many daily activities.
There are other therapeutic exercises, including postural exercises to improve posture and correct faulty posture, relaxation exercises to induce relaxation, and area-specific exercises such as breathing exercises and circulatory exercises.

The applied therapeutic exercise depends on the patient's goals, the stage of tissue healing, general conditioning, and the response to pain. The progression of resistance training gradually increases the load on contractile and noncontractile tissue to optimize function.
