The Benefits Of Healthy Exercise At Our Plumas Physical Therapy Clinics

Many people believe that if they are in pain, they just need to lie down and rest to feel better. Following an injury, it is natural to avoid any form of physical activity. However, that will cause your muscles to weaken and become tight and increase discomfort, stopping the healing process.

The good news is that we can assist you with therapeutic exercise at our Blairsden and Quincy, CA clinic! Our physical therapists specialize in movement and can help you improve your strength, range of motion, and overall body function. Our goal at Plumas Physical Therapy is to help you live a pain-free life with increased power and endurance.

Allow us to create a customized recovery strategy for you. Your treatment plan will include specialized therapies to ease pain, improve problematic areas, speed recovery, and attain optimal levels of function.

Different Therapeutic Exercise Plans

Your recovery plan may include a variety of therapeutic exercises, each of which serves a specific purpose. Here are some examples:

Posture exercises

You may not realize it, but your posture directly impacts your muscle power, coordination, and risk of injury. Working at a desk for long periods, leaning over keyboards, poor muscle tone, and poor posture patterns can all lead to discomfort or injury. Posture exercises help to relieve aches and pains by correcting poor posture, making daily tasks easier and more enjoyable.

Balance and coordination exercises

Every time you get up, walk, rest, brush your teeth, prepare a meal, or go about your daily activities, you put your muscles and skeletal structures to the test. If you lose your balance, you lose your ability to protect yourself and keep yourself safe! If you do not have control over your body, you risk falling and injuring yourself. That is why balance and coordination exercises are so important, especially after an injury or illness.

Endurance exercises

Increasing power, endurance, and muscle strength are essential for maintaining good balance and stability and bone and joint health. Resistance and endurance exercises build muscle strength at our physical therapy clinic while minimizing injury risk.

Range of motion and flexibility exercises

These exercises are designed to improve the range of motion in your joints and soft tissues. This can be accomplished through active, passive, or assisted stretching activities that are designed to help your joints move more freely and without pain.

Release and relaxation exercises

While it is essential to exercise the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the body, it is also vital to help them relax and release. Even if sleeping while in pain is difficult, it can help your body begin the healing process. Pain-relieving therapies such as heat, cold, electrical stimulation, massage, and trigger point therapy can all help with recovery, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, and keep you going to the gym for more activity!

Area-specific exercises

It is normal to think of exercise as something we do to strengthen our muscles, but it can also benefit our body’s other systems. Area-specific exercises include those that target your arms, legs, or back!
