Home Exercises Programmes
Providing a home exercise program (HEP) to patients is one of the most fundamental and important aspects of physiotherapy. Research has shown that patients who adhere to their prescribed exercises are significantly better at achieving their goals and demonstrate a greater increase in physical function.
About Home Exercises Programmes
A home exercise program is a series of exercises that patients complete at home to maintain strength and increase therapeutic gains. Home exercises are designed to be practical, accessible and feasible so that patients can maximize efforts without instruction.
Designed to continue a patient’s recovery progress outside of the physical therapy office, a home exercise program encourages patients to participate in specific exercises. Patients can increase their chances for recovery by regularly performing these exercises and strengthening musculature.
