Improve Flexibility and Balance

Flexibility is the the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe muscles but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Along with physiotherapy building muscle strength and aiding in recovery, these exercises can also improve flexibility, a vital part of maintaining a sound body.

Balance sometimes can be difficult after injury, and more often than not, regardless if you are injured or not, the body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing the body off-balance in some way just from daily activities.

When someone does have an injury, the ability to balance is sometimes slowed down following an injury and needs to be re-trained. It is also important for some people who have poor generally balance reaction times and are significantly more prone to injuries.
