Physical Therapy -> Strength -> Lower Extremity

Lower Extremity

Lower extremity strength, or leg strength, is important for moving and walking safely. PT works on strengthening patient’s legs so they can jump with both feet at the same time, walk over various surfaces without falling, step over obstacles without hitting your toe, and walk with good bony alignment and support. PT helps build leg strength with exercises and activities that target muscles in the hips, glutes, thighs, calves, and feet.
