Range of motion exercises:
The range of motion is called the angle between the bending and elongation modes. Exercise therapy helps increase the range of motion of the joint and increase its flexibility.
Stretching improves the elasticity and relaxation of muscles, which ultimately reduces muscle spasms and increases range of motion.
Balance exercises can help strengthen muscles and coordinate walking.Endurance exercises are exercises that involve a large number of muscles over a long period of time. Endurance training can increase heart rate and breathing and help improve lung and heart health. In addition, endurance training can help increase a person’s fitness.
