Eventually in time, everyone will notice a decline in their ability to do or perform the activities that they once did. Often, the beginning of their regressions will occur because of injuries, overuse, or poor habits. Once their functional limitations or pain becomes significant, many will begin to rely on medication and at times even surgery to help restore or improve the mobility or function that has declined.
However, the above scenario does not need to be your story. You can significantly improve your function and performance by specifically identifying and treating the factors that are causing your limitations. Below are the top 3 factors that causes functional and performance limitations for the majority.
1. Your body loses the appropriate mobility of the tissues, muscles and joints to move.
2. The ability of specific muscles to initiate, resist and/or endure is diminished.
3. Your body experiences a diminished or lost ability to coordinate appropriate responses to facilitate efficient movement.
The good news about each of these major factors is that they all can be evaluated and treated effectively by a physical therapist who has been trained to do so. Dr. Eric Kim, DPT, from Whole Body Physical Therapy, has been evaluating and treating these factors for the past several years and has seen tremendous success in helping his patients improve in their ability to function and perform.

Tip of the day: Don't wait until your issues become more problematic, the more you allow yourself to regress, the more of your own time and resources will be needed to take care of the issues.
