Physical Therapy -> Range of Motion -> Active Assist

Active Assist

These exercises involve partial assistance from the therapist. The patient does most of the movement, but they get a little help to complete the movements correctly. In most cases, this restricted motion is a result of weakness or pain caused due to falls, bruises, or accidents, up to serious injuries.
