Physical Exercise Home Therapy Program
By Milos Pesic
Physical therapy may involve walk training, range of motion, restorative therapy, therapeutic exercises, and programs to improve strength and independence. Consider a boy named Marc. He injured his knee on a soccer game. He placed a cold icy compress to his injury immediately afterwards but the pain persisted. He visited his doctor and found out that he had torn his Anterior Cruciate Ligament, the tissue that connects the two major bones of the knees. He underwent surgery to treat his injury, yet after which Marc would still need a physical exercise therapy program for full recovery. This shall help him rebuild his muscle strength and recover the range of motion in his injured knee, and so Marc could heal properly, and completely. Yet how does or should a physical exercise therapy program work?
First is to look for the right physical therapist. The PT must have a masterís or doctoral degree in physical therapy and must be licensed by your state to practice. You should also know that physical therapists have specializations in different areas. A particular therapist may work mostly with sports injuries, for example, while others
may be experts in head injuries, or in children, babies, the elderly, or those with particular illnesses. So you should find one who suits your case. The recommendation of a doctor may not be enough to earn your confidence so you should ask questions to your prospective PT. You should ask about his expertise in such conditions like yours, his therapy plan for you as well as needed physical therapy equipments, also ask how relevant are those in your case or are the equipments necessary to assist implementation of the program; finally ask the exact length of each therapy session and the frequency of the therapy exercises. You can also your school coach for physical therapist recommendations or contact your stateís physical therapy association for names of licensed PTís in your area.
Now youíre ready for your physical exercise therapy program, but not so easy. You should remember to stick to the plans of your physical exercise therapy program. Follow your PTís directions sternly. Listen to your PT to know your body so youíll realize how an affected area functions so you can spot problems or avoid further injury in the future. And also talk to your PT; heís always there to help, and to join you in celebrating your success.
Though recovery can feel frustrating and slow, take a moment to appreciate the difference that a physical exercise therapy program can make. In time youíll have increased strength, endurance, flexibility, better postural alignment, pain relief Ė and confidence.
