Matching your exercises to the strength of your muscles: Ian Cooper, Myositis Discovery Programme
Matching your exercises to the strength of your muscles
Muscle weakness in several muscle groups, is the hallmark of myositis. To help gauge any changes in your muscle function, routine monitoring of muscle strength is most likely performed every time you visit your specialist. Without sophisticated testing equipment, the most common method of assessing your individual muscle strength is when the doctor asks you to contract the muscle being tested whilst they try to stop your limb from moving.
