Strengthening and stretching exercises are an essentially part in the recovery of injuries, prevention of new injuries and overall musculoskeletal health of the patient. The doctor will recommend specific
exercises and stretches as part of the therapy plan to help improve range of motion and joint mobility, increase function and reduce pain.
