Need physical therapy? 3 key questions your PT will Ask

Physical therapy is a lot of work, and you’ll need to put in the time for these exercises. You don’t want them so painful that they become unbearable or stop helping all together! It may seem like an uphill battle at first – but once your PT has prescribed what will best suit both their needs (PTs are always individual) as well as yours; giving feedback on how we can help alleviate any discomfort should there still be issues after some weeks/months worth more progress*.

A physical therapist spends most days asking three main question: 

1.      What are your limitations?

We’ve all had that one friend who seems to be able to do anything and everything. You know, the person with an amazing set of lungs for singing in tune or throwing a football very far? But what about those other times when they can barely pick up their own drink off of your kitchen table without losing balance; there must have been some force limiting them from performing these tasks right then- so why not let our PTs help out now before things get worse?!

Your physical therapist needs information on how pain impacts quality life because we’re going treat this condition holistically – meaning each part will affect every other area affected by it! It’s critical understanding problem impacting someone’s ability

If you can’t clean your house because of knee pain, this is a great example. After an evaluation I may determine that it’s due to weakness in the gluteal muscles and tightness in either quadriceps or hamstrings which would help guide what we need for relief from certain areas only!

2.      What are your goals?

If you have a goal in mind, like going on an adventure or running around with friends at the park. It’s important that we know about this ahead of time because there may be things necessary for reaching your ultimate physical therapy success!

3.      Are you committed to this plan?

Your success depends on you. You need to be willing and able to follow through with physical therapy, which can last for weeks or months at a time if needed. If we’re only here when it’s convenient then our efforts won’t have much effect.”

After you’ve achieved your goal of regaining strength and reducing pain, it may not be necessary to continue doing special exercises every day or on most days. However, ” lifestyle changes must still be made in order for this new normalcy not become an issue.”

Making a plan is always better when both parties are on board. If you don’t feel committed to the process, be upfront about it and let’s see what we can do together!
