Resistance bands and cords are excellent products for use in the rehabilitation of sports injury. An array of home exercises using resistance bands and cords can be prescribed by the chartered physiotherapist to speed up the recovery from a sports injury. Resistance bands such as Ci band, theraband, cliniband are elastic bands that provide resistance for use in muscle strengthening.
The advantages of resistance bands over free weights and pulley systems include the fact that resistance bands are lightweight and portable, which means that they can be used anywhere. Also resistance bands react to the strength of the patient which means they'll only resist as much as you do. Resistance bands also have the advantage of being able to be used in functional, sports specific patterns which means that patients can strengthen using sports related movement patterns.
