Range of motion exercises are so good to help restore movement. They are very good for people who have had strokes, since they may have been paralyzed on one side, and unable to move their limbs very much. These exercises can really help restore function so people can return to a more normal life.
These exercises are also beneficial for people who are taking martial arts classes, for instance, so they can improve their flexibility and strength.
Range of motion exercises are as beneficial for the healthy as they are for those who are doing rehab work after a stroke or because of arthritis.
