Strength and Weakness

Twin Falls Physical Therapist

Injury, nutrition, age – many things can cause weakness. Physical therapy can stop the downhill slide and get you back to health.

BodyBalance Physical Therapy can help you whether your problem is getting up out of a chair or adding those extra few inches to your long jump.

Weakness can be a downward spiral. As we get weaker, we tend to do less. As we do less, we will weaken further.

As physical therapists, we understand the relationship each muscle, bone, and tendon has to movement. We can help you target and increase strength in the appropriate muscles for each type of activity.

There are many things that you can do to stop the cycle.

  • Stay active! The more active you are, the more muscle you will retain.
  • Don’t delay physical therapy. The quicker you start, the stronger you will remain.
  • Get enough sleep. Your body needs this recovery time.
