Physical Therapy -> Strength -> Total Body / Gross / Overall

Total Body / Gross / Overall

Overall body strength is important so we can use body parts or our body as a whole to perform a task. Overall body strength is worked on in physical therapy by doing tasks that require large muscle groups, such as jumping on the trampoline, squats, going up and down the stairs, and climbing over obstacle courses.
