WHY IS MY PHYSICAL THERAPY TAKING LONGER THAN EXPECTED?
Physical therapy is not a quick fix. We prescribe therapy that follows the way our anatomy and bodies need to operate. This requires a certain amount of time for certain types of tissue in the body to be repaired. Depending on the damage to the tissue will affect the time it takes for repair. If you try and speed the process, you could reinjure yourself.
In addition to the “physical” therapy, there has to be “mental” therapy as well - which is good old fashioned patience and perseverance. Physical recovery happens in stages, and you have to be present for the whole program, from beginning to end, if you want lasting results.
