Choose White Rock Orthopaedic for Therapeutic Exercise in Surrey

In addition to conventional physiotherapy treatments, White Rock Orthopaedic also offers therapeutic exercises to help accelerate the healing process. Therapeutic exercises are different from most exercises in that they are specifically meant for correcting detailed problems. With a focus on regaining flexibility, strength and endurance related to certain physical problems, therapeutic exercise in Surrey can improve and restore physical function in injured muscles and tendons.

Therapeutic exercise can be defined as an activity that is performed or practiced in order to develop or improve a specific function or skill. We systematically plan each exercise to ensure the body movements develop and maintain physical fitness.

Benefits of Therapeutic Exercise in Surrey & Area

The ultimate goal of therapeutic exercise is to achieve optimal levels of symptom-free movement during basic and complex physical activities. After surgery, work-related injuries or sports injuries, therapeutic exercise can:

  • Improve and restore physical function
  • Prevent loss of function
  • Enhance your functional capabilities
  • Prevent and decrease impairment or disability
  • Improve your overall health, fitness and sense of well-being

As your injury will be very different from another patient’s injury, our physiotherapists are sure to individually analyze your problem and develop a therapeutic exercise program that will meet your unique needs.

Common Therapeutic Exercises We Utilize

  • Range of motion: The goal is to maintain and increase range of motion through passive, active and active assisted exercises as well as techniques of joint mobilization and soft tissue stretching. 
  • Muscle performance: These exercises increase muscle strength, power and endurance through resisted and endurance techniques. 
  • Postural: To improve your posture and correct faulty posture, these therapeutic exercises increase muscle strength and mobility. 
  • Balance and coordination: After an injury, you may be off-balance or less coordinated than before. These exercises are designed to improve your balance and coordination. 
  • Relaxation: Muscles may be tense after an injury, so these exercises are implemented to induce relaxation, which can help speed along the healing process. 
  • Area specific: Depending on the location of your injury, area specific exercises can improve various functioning. Common area specific exercises include breathing and circulatory exercises.

Each type of therapeutic exercise focuses on a different goal or muscle group to ensure your specific needs are being met by our prescription of exercises.
