Rehabilitation professionals use exercise as a treatment modality on a daily basis. To be an efficient and effective strategy, knowledge of the basic physiological principles that underlie adaptations to exercise is necessary. The type of adaptation is dependent on the specific type of exercise stimulus. These stimuli can vary, and it stands to reason that the training-induced adaptations will be different. It is crucial for rehabilitation professionals, sports clinicians, coaches and trainers to understand the biological process of adaptation to help their clients improve performance and rehabilitate after an injury.
