Can physical therapy help prevent lipitor muscle strains?



Lipitor is a medication used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. One of the potential side effects of Lipitor is muscle strains [1]. However, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, physical therapy can help prevent muscle strains in individuals taking statins, including Lipitor [2]. The study found that exercise and physical therapy improved muscle strength and function in patients taking statins. Additionally, a review published in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Drugs found that moderate exercise is safe for individuals experiencing muscle pain from statins [3]. Therefore, physical therapy can be a helpful tool in preventing muscle strains in individuals taking Lipitor.
