How will Physical Therapy help Me?
Despite an unfavorable diagnosis, there is hope! Making reasonable changes in the amount of your daily activities, you can decrease your pain and increase your function.
Your session will consist of some or all of the following: manual stretching, teaching home flexibility and strengthening for pain relief and muscle restoration.
Your sessions will also assist in helping you to return to normal activities of daily living and increase your mobility.
You will attend physical therapy one to three times a week up to 18 sessions and will be given a home program to do daily. Adherence to this home program will greatly affect your outcome.
Towards the end of the duration of PT, you may be offered a trial membership at Dayani to perform your gym and pool programs on your own.
