Focusing on your entire body when rehabilitating an injured body part leads to greater recovery outcomes. One method to help you achieve maximum outcomes is by performing functional exercises. Functional exercises are specific exercises geared to each individual person that focuses on training your body to perform the activities you complete your daily life. These activities could range from walking, sitting, standing, pushing, pulling, rotating and climbing. Functional exercise helps to improve your body’s ability to work as one unit which can help to reduce injury, pain and to lead to longer benefits. Additional benefits can include improved balance, coordination, core strength along with improved body awareness. By knowing how to move your body in correct movement patterns and engaging proper muscles to complete desired tasks can lead to a happier and healthier you.
