Movement and muscular atrophy - गतिविधि तथा मस्कुलर एट्रोफी

  • Muscular atrophy refers to the loss of muscle mass. This directly contributes towards loss of tone and strength of the affected muscle, which compromises quality of life of the affected individual. Depending on the condition, the muscle loss can be reversed by physical exercises offered through physiotherapy. The atrophy or wastage of the muscle due to a developmental complexity can become worse with disuse of the affected muscle. In these situations, physical activity rendered through physiotherapy is the best course of action to help rebuild some of the wasted muscle over a period of time. Some of the goals of physical rehabilitation through physiotherapy include strengthening of the wasted muscles, preventing further loss or damage to those muscles, thus contributing towards the emotional and physical well-being of your child.
