Myopathy or Muscle Weakness Recovery
Patients who have experienced a serious injury or illness often suffer from myopathy or muscle weakness, which makes the daily tasks of living difficult and tiring. Regaining your stamina and strength is important, and there is always hope.
Early rehabilitative care is essential, and The National Rehabilitation Caucus reports that 80 percent of patients who receive rehabilitative care return to an active lifestyle at home.
Sugar Land Rehab Hospital provides expert rehabilitative programs aimed at restoring pre-injury and/or pre-illness muscle strength. They are customized to the individual needs of our patients and designed by physicians and therapists.
Recovery goals include:
- Transitioning from bed to chair; sitting without assistance
- Balancing and walking independently
- Preparing proper meals, dressing and enjoying daily life activities

Goal-Based Muscle Weakness Rehabilitation
Evaluation and treatment plans
We want you to return home strong and ready to enjoy your daily life. Upon arrival, we assess your condition, identify physical weaknesses and set practical goals you can achieve.
We will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs, and then work together to get you back to your normal life as quickly as possible.
Typical therapy modalities
While recovering from the effects of a serious injury or illness, you can expect our physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists to work with you to build strength. Together, you’ll address the following areas:
- Preparing meals and dressing independently
- Mastering balance, sitting and, when possible, walking
- Maintaining overall good health and a positive, can-do approach to life
A day in the life of a patient recovering from myopathy and muscle weakness
Building strength to live independently will require dedication from you, and we’re here to assist you each day. To accomplish this, you can expect to participate in goal-based therapy for at least three hours each day and at least five days per week. Therapy is offered both individually and in group settings.
Visitors are welcome during times of rest, and we encourage you to live as normally as possible.
