Exercise Prescription



Why Exercise?


At Health in Motion Physiotherapy Sheffield we consider exercise a fundamental part of rehabilitation and believe regular exercise to be crucial to good health for all. Physiotherapy rehabilitation exercises can be wide and varied in nature, aiming to improve physical qualities such as flexibility and strength, promote tissue healing by reducing inflammation, improving blood flow and supporting collagen deposition. Exercises may also be used to gradually improve function such as when returning to sport or can be used to reduce pain.



When to use Exercise Prescription 


The usefulness of different types of exercise has been validated by research for a wide range of conditions from musculoskeletal injuries such as a sprained ankle to cardiorespiratory illness such as Asthma and COPD. The type of exercise prescribed will depend upon the condition or injury, the stage of healing and the intended purpose of the exercise. 



At Health in Motion Physiotherapy Sheffield we provide premier quality physio treatment for all musculoskeletal conditions. Our chartered physiotherapists work regularly with International athletes and are experts in sports injury rehabilitation. We work with people from all walks of life, and all activity levels.
