Exercise Rehabilitation Helps to Improve Flexibility and Balance
Flexibility is the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe muscles but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Not only do these rehabilitation exercises build muscle strength and aid in recovery but they can also improve flexibility. This is a vital part of maintaining a sound body. Balance can be difficult for the body after time regardless of whether you are injured or not. The body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing you off-balance just from daily activities.
