Are You Doing Your Physical Therapy Homework?
A successful physical therapy plan requires homework outside of the clinic. Why? Because building strength, endurance, and flexibility takes more time than what an office visit can accommodate. The discipline and time you choose to put into your homework will also affect your recovery time. The great news is you can heal from an injury with minimal equipment. Homework typically includes exercises, and work/activity restrictions.
The goal of physical therapy is to improve range of motion, muscle strength, and physical condition. It’s a treatment method to retrain your body to move to the best of its ability after an injury or illness. Physical therapy helps improve or restore your physical function and fitness level.
