Active Exercises


‘Active exercise’ is a term commonly used by medical, rehabilitation and fitness centres. ‘Exercise’ is that which an individual does using one’s own strength or energy. Active exercises involve conditioning, strengthening, flexibility and functional training. It is essential to exert force to complete a motion while doing exercise. Active exercise help keep joints flexible, maintain good blood flow to the exercised joints and may help prevent blood clots. In some cases, the therapists or instructors use passive exercises (someone assists the patient to move limbs or body parts) when an individual is unable to carry out exercises on their own due to injury or pain. A health care practitioner may assign active exercises after an injury or in connection with medications and other therapies to help manage chronic pain.

Patients should always speak with their health care practitioner before beginning any exercise regime to ensure that the exercises are appropriate for their specific health concerns and injuries.
