Physical therapy is a great way to recover from injuries, surgeries, and debilitating conditions. But for most patients, physical therapy doesn’t go on forever. So what happens after physical therapy ends? That’s our topic for this article. We’ll discuss what might happen after your physical therapy session is over and how to move forward.
Often, your physical therapist will give you specific exercises and stretches that you can do at home. These will be tailored specifically to your situation, and will help you continue your rehabilitation outside of the PT clinic. Some patients may do well by continuing on with a gym program, and others may not need to do any additional exercises at all. It’s all dependent on the patient in question and each patient should be treated individually.
Communicate with your PT
It’s always important to communicate openly with your physical therapist about your recovery goals. This will help them craft a strategy that will allow you to achieve those goals. Physical therapy is a two-way street. You need to work with your physical therapist and communicate with them in order to recover as quickly and effectively as possible.
