Muscle weakness

Your health, our priority. Change is possible

How we can help

Muscle weakness can affect mobility and movement and contribute to painful joints. This may be surgery-related or the result of an underlying health condition, injury, or fracture. Fortunately, our body allows us to strengthen muscles. But physiotherapy exercises need to be specifically directed to the weak area and personalised for optimum results.

Our method

To help strengthen your muscles your physiotherapist will:

  • Determine the area of muscle weakness and create a personalised physiotherapy treatment plan to help you reach your goals
  • Assess the way you walk if the weakness is in your legs or core muscles
  • Check your balance and coordination if you feel unsteady or have a history of falling
  • Look at your joint movement to see if any restriction is impacting your function
  • Assess your home environment and advise on how to make it a safer place to move around in
  • Advise you on grip and handle bars as well as other aids in your home
  • Review your walking aids
  • Assess you on the stairs and give suitable suggestions for helping you cope

Our top tips to develop muscle strength

  • Keep moving
  • Carry out your physiotherapy programme daily
  • Control any pain with medication
  • Eat a healthy diet with plenty of protein
  • Stay hydrated
  • Use a suitable walking aid
  • Take the advice of your physiotherapist and adapt your home environment accordingly
