ROM exercises will assist in preventing

A Contractures

A contracture is a shortening of muscles, tissues, tendons, and skin at the joints, due to lack of movement and exercise. When joints continue to bent over time, they can no longer be straightened. Range of motion (ROM) exercises contribute a way to maintain joint flexibility. In passive ROM, someone moves the joints with no assistance from the client. In active ROM, the client does the exercises alone or with the help of devices, such as a strap.
