Therapeutic exercise is any form of free or assisted physical activity of the individual, which involves the movement of one or more parts of the body, in order to contribute to the treatment of dysfunctions and health problems. Therapeutic exercise should be repetitive and part of a broader treatment approach. It is used as a complementary method of treatment by the vast majority of medical specialties.
Therapeutic exercise as a therapeutic means of intervention includes the application of carefully graduated loads and forces throughout the musculoskeletal system, to specific structures or individual tissues of the human body in a controlled, progressive and safe manner, aimed at reducing physical dysfunction and improving kinetic functionality.
The ultimate goal of the therapeutic exercise program is to achieve the optimal level of physical fitness without pain symptoms during basic and complex physical activities. Therapeutic exercises incorporate a wide variety of activities, techniques and movements. The type, technique and duration of the exercise are different for each practitioner or patient and constitute an individualized treatment program adapted to the subjective and objective evaluation of the physiotherapist.
