In other words, whether you are recovering from an injury or do not have a regular exercise routine it is important to maintain your range of motion and flexibility. Here are three ways physical therapy can help improve flexibility and range of motion.
IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY BY STRETCHING
Stretching muscles can improve your flexibility. There are benefits of going to a physical therapist for direction on stretching. They should be able to assign specific stretches based on your specific muscles and joints that are of concern. Stretching is a great way to increase blood flow and get more oxygen to the muscles and tissues. Over time, consistent stretching can help relax and strengthen your muscles to improve your flexibility and range of motion.
INCREASE RANGE OF MOTION THROUGH EXERCISES

Your physical therapists should have a specific set of exercises designed to help increase your range of motion depending on the joint and your current situation. Range of motion is determined by how far you can move a joint in all different directions.
