Twist, D. ;Ma, D.  Physical Therapy  1986 Sep; 66(9): 1403-6


ABSTRACT: This case report documents the treatment of a patient who experienced progressive muscle weakness and a decrease in function over time that did not appear to be related to any secondary neuromuscular disease. We discuss the relationship between age and maximal muscle function in addition to some general guidelines for rehabilitation. This type of patient can represent a challenge for the physical therapist. This case report, however, illustrates the degree of muscular and functional recovery that can result with a physical therapy program aimed at reducing levels and intensity of exercise, daily activity, and stress. Such a combination of short-term goals appears to be essential to the successful management of a patient with post-polio syndrome.
