Polio affects the nerves. and nerves wont work which will make the muscles weak. Yes go to Neurological rehabilitation as rightly said  to increase the strength of your muscles.

Ther is no treatment for polio virus, it can be only prevented. I feel sad that you did not received the polio virus vaccine. Once the disease occurs it caused lot of damage to the nervous system

Do not repeat this mistake, join the govt campaign to eradicate polio. Every year govt shall advertise about the mass vaccination to the kids below 5 yrs. Ask all your near and dear to get them vaccinated at any government outlet, hospital, public places. The second dose will be after one month. You can get polio drops even after regular vaccination by your family doctor. By this let us hope the polio is eradicated in our country by 2010.
