What Does Warm up and Cool Down To Our Body??

 What is WARM UP?? A warm-up is a pre-exercise phase that usually consists of low- to moderate-intensity movements and activities. Its main goal is to progressively raise the body's core temperature, pulse rate, breathing rate, and blood supply to the muscles that are in use. The purpose of a warm-up is to get the body ready for more physically and psychologically taxing activities and exercise. Many exercises, including dynamic stretching, light aerobics, and sport-specific drills , are frequently used as part of a warm-up. These exercises improve brain activation, joint mobility, and muscular flexibility. A warm-up also makes it easier for oxygen to reach the muscles efficiently, which enhances energy metabolism and lowers the chance of injury. The warm-up phase facilitates the change from a state of inactivity or rest to one of physical exertion preparation. It is seen as a crucial part of any fitness programme, helping to enhance performance, reduce injuries, and promote gener

What is Active movement in Physiotherapy? | Hey Physio

Active exercise is an exercise in which the patient exerts force to complete an action, e.g. standing up from the bed. The Physiotherapist is typically a supervisor and provides little to no assistance to the patient unless a problem arises i.e. fall. OR The movement performed within the unrestricted ROM controlled by the voluntary contraction of the muscle is known by Active Movement in Physiotherapy. Classification of Active Movement 1- Active assisted exercise:  In which assistance is provided by an outside force, either manual or mechanical when muscle strength is inadequate to complete the motion. 2- Active free exercise:  In which the voluntary contraction of the muscle can perform full ROM against gravity. 3- Active resisted exercise:  In which the voluntary contraction of the muscle is resisted by an outside force.
