If you’ve ever wanted to put your fitness worries behind you, the physical therapist at Nevada Rehabilitation Centers is ready when you are. When we say “behind you,” what do we mean? Well, literally just that. The gluteals in your butt are an often-neglected, vitally important set of muscles that are responsible for supporting many of our most basic functions, such as activities involving the back, pelvis, knees and legs.
Let’s face it: Nowadays, many of us spend hours sitting, either watching TV or working on the computer. As a result, our glutes become underused and weak. Because of this, other muscle groups have to take up the slack, which leads to strains and misalignment because of overuse. Tightness in the hips and lower back, knee pain, wobbly ankles, even trouble walking or running can often be traced to the failure of the gluteal muscles to do their job. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete, a recreation enthusiast, or just want to accomplish everyday tasks pain-free, strengthening the glutes is a key part of overall wellness and performance.
When a new client comes to our state-of-the-art facility complaining of balance problems or discomfort when they walk or lift heavy objects, our highly trained staff makes sure not to overlook these powerful muscles when conducting our comprehensive evaluation. Working one-on-one with our physical therapist, we target underused muscles and joints and guide our clients through a personalized program aimed at achieving strength, balance and total fitness. We’ll create a home fitness program so that our clients can maintain their fitness level between our sessions and after our treatments have met their goals.
When it comes to your health and fitness, your gluteal muscles shouldn’t take a backseat! Working with our physical therapist at Nevada Rehabilitation Centers will help you create a strong foundation for total fitness. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
