Mobilizing Physical Exercises

Physical therapy is an essential part of the rehabilitation system. In our program we use mobilizing physical exercises that are aimed at the improvement of mobility of the joints of both the spine and extremities, creation of new motor patterns, and acquisition of the necessary mobility for daily life skills. The exercises are performed following the rule "from center to periphery" so that the main influence is on trunk movement and proximal joints with gradual involvement of movement in distal small joints. New motor acts are taught first through passive movement, then through passive- active movement and finally through active movement. Simple movements are undertaken first, followed by more complex movements”. Daily sessions include breathing exercises, exercises for joint mobilization as well as strengthening exercises
