Physical therapy has enormous benefits in terms of helping to improve muscle and bone strength, balance, and coordination. It also has important stress-busting benefits, and can be fun, too.
Doing stretching and breathing exercises, as in yoga, restores health and reinvigorates you. Gentle aerobics gets your heart and lungs working together to help keep you mobile for longer. Even going for a short walk round the garden or in a park helps keep you fit ad active. If you can do such activities in the company of others, so much the better.
Surgery and chronic illnesses of one kind or another are stressful to live with. Anything that can lift the spirits and keep you engaged is a positive. Restorative therapy has a role to play in achieving this, in part through recreation therapy.
Playing board games, celebrating someone’s birthday, or enjoying a concert are social activities that stimulate conversation and keep you mentally agile. Pet therapy, where patients get to play with, or stroke, tame animals, is a great restorative and calming activity
