Muscle Strengthening

If you've ever visited Dr. Lutz in his clinic you will have likely heard him talk about strengthening your muscles.  Strong muscles can improve function, may help you delay surgery and will improve recovery time and post op function.  Physiotherapy is a wonderful way to develop a plan and get instructions on individual exercises (and therefore is the best way to achieve success). That being said, not everyone has access to physiotherapists and therefore Dr. Lutz has put together a few videos for you so that you will have exercises to work on while you are at home.

If you have proper biomechanical alignment it can help your muscles work well. This alignment may be improved by massage, chiro or physio.  If you have proper alignment, symmetrically strong muscles will help keep you there and will allow you to function properly.
