Physical Therapy is not a walk in the park, it's time-consuming, but you need to know that nothing worthwhile happens overnight and there is a popular saying that says ''Rome was not built in a day'' therefore, you need to do more than wishing that your session will end soon, and you will get back to your Pre-injury stage.
Here are some Practical steps to follow to get you out of Physical Therapy sooner than you should
😎 Be Aware of Your Goals
Your PT would have likely outlined some goals that you must reach before you return home, but you need to write down your own goals as well. This will help you to get out of therapy as soon as possible. You may also keep a journal to mark your progress and remind yourself of your daily goals.
😎 Review Milestones
Some days may be challenging more than others. On these days, it is important to remind yourself how far you've come. Keep a determined Spirit.
😎 Do Your Homework
There is no way around this, if you want to know how to get out of physical therapy faster, then it’s often what happens outside a session that can make a difference. Depending on your condition, your PT may assign some exercises for you to do outside of regular therapy sessions. Following these to the letter means you’re able to make more progress during your sessions.
😎 Go for Your Appointments Regularly and On Time
A big part of this Tip is going to your appointment regularly and on time, this will help you to spend quality time with your Physical Therapist and give you all the care that you need.
😎 Talk to your Physical Therapist
It is important to talk to your PT when you're in pain, they are in the best position to know how to help you. Pain can make you skip appointments but when you talk to your Physical Therapist, they can help you adjust your treatment to accommodate you and may also provide solutions to alleviate the pain.
😎 Ask Questions
Ask Questions. Your Physical Therapist will be happy to hear them and proffer solutions or give necessary advice. Don't turn Google into your Doctor, you may do yourself more harm than good.
