General Muscle Weakness
Do you find yourself having difficulty doing ordinary tasks like getting up from a low chair, standing for a long time or walking long distances? Often, with being sedentary, a change in activity level, post-pregnancy, injury or post-surgery you will lose muscle mass and strength. This makes it hard to do many activities we use to take for granted.
Your muscles make you move and support your skeleton and joints. Poor muscle strength and control leads to abnormal strains on your joints, ligaments, tendons, heart, lungs, digestive system and more. Being weak and inactive significantly increases your risk for heart problems, diabetes, stroke and more.
