The Key to a Successful Rehabilitation Program

Category: Education, Physical Therapy

man during rehabilitation exercisesThe specialists at Sovereign Rehabilitation know what it takes to get you back to living your best and most active life after an injury or a debilitation condition sidelines you. They cater safe, effective rehabilitation programs specifically to you — your injury, condition, and ability level.

But their support and expertise are only a few pieces of the puzzle. There are things you can do, too, to help ensure that your physical therapy rehabilitation program is effective.

  • Stick with the program. Trying to overcome an injury can definitely be tough, and sometimes we don’t see progress as quickly as we’d like. But it’s important to stick with the rehabilitation program as your therapist has designed it. Their high level of training and expertise means they’ve designed this program to help you achieve the best results in the safest way possible. So while it may take some time, trust that staying on track with your program, appointments, exercises, and instructions is critical to your getting back on your feet.
  • Don’t allow your lifestyle to work against you. This means making sure you’re getting enough sleep, eating a diet full of fresh, whole foods and steering clear of things like sugar, trans fats, and alcohol, which can all lead to inflammation and further pain. Try to keep your stress levels low as well, and keep up with approved exercises outside of the office, too.
  • Keep an open dialogue with your therapist. Your physical therapist is there to help ensure that you have the most positive outcome possible, and to work with you in a way that’s best for your condition or injury. Being open and honest about how you’re feeling throughout the process can mean a more successful outcome.
  • Stay positive. This can be easier said than done when you’re dealing with a condition or injury that’s put you on the sidelines of your own life, but a positive mindset goes a long way when it comes to getting better.
