The sports medicine industry has seen a large number of treatment innovations and options come and go over the last 50 years. Resistance bands and cords have survived and flourished because they have been proven to be a beneficial tool for patients of any strength level. In this blog we’ll go into more detail as to why resistance cords are such a great option for low-impact rehabilitation.

Why are Resistance Bands and Cords Beneficial for Rehabilitation?

1. Great for Rehabilitation at Home – If you’re recovering from a sports injury, you likely have been encouraged by your physical therapist to do a wide array of rehabilitation exercises at home. With resistance bands, you can have the best home-based rehab program possible. Resistance bands can help rehab patients improve stability and strengthen muscles in the comfort of their own homes.

2. Beneficial for Sedentary Lifestyles – When individuals are rehabilitating from an injury, they often will avoid weight machines and dumbbells for fear of injury. The problem with this approach is that it can encourage a sedentary lifestyle, which can lead to other health problems. Resistance cord training can benefit anyone regardless of how active they are after an injury. These rehabilitation tools can also help people with a sedentary lifestyle ease back into more activity.

3. Improve Muscular Strength – Resistance bands can challenge individuals across all fitness levels, even those who are extremely fit. This is why professional athletes use resistance bands across all major sports, including a large number of Olympians.
