Physical therapy is often considered a rigid treatment option by those who have worked with an inexperienced practitioner in Atlanta. The reality is that specialist physical therapists can adapt treatment plans to your lifestyle and work.
In order for patients to fully benefit from physical therapy, it is important that there is a life/treatment balance. If you are struggling to maintain an exercise or wellness regimen, the likelihood is that little consideration is being given to your personal needs.
Do you play a sport or like to entertain guests? Those aspects of your life are important when it comes to physical therapy. Incorporating exercises and guidance that accounts for how you live from day-to-day can make treatment and rehabilitation more effective.
The goal is to create an everyday environment that promotes healing. This cannot be achieved when your physical therapy is in conflict with how you live your life. Whether you are wearing weights on your legs to build strength or need to exercise five times a day, how your wellness journey is laid out is pivotal to success.
Work & Ergonomics
Returning to work after an injury or accident is no mean feat. A lot of adjustments are typically needed and that requires the cooperation of all parties who are committed to seeing you return to normal. Workplace accommodations can therefore play an important role in your recovery.
Discussing your needs with a supervisor or manager is an essential element of getting back to work. You may not have the mental or physical capacity to perform all the functions of your role after an injury or surgery. Being honest about your limitations is better than pushing the limits and exacerbating an injury.
