In a comprehensive plan, restoration of strength and function is often necessary for a full recovery. Weakness in one area often increases the strain and demand on another region in the body. When the time is right, exercises will be recommended and demonstrated to aid in restoring balance around the injured muscles and joints and to help the patients take control of their recovery to prevent re-injury in the future.
If we can control our body through the movements of daily life, we are much more durable against injury. Many people do not move enough or with enough variety to maintain the muscle strength and stability that they need for a healthy future. Taking responsibility for this aspect of our lives rests on no one’s shoulders but our own. The ultimate goal is to find your weaknesses and make them strengths.
