We have covered how to prepare for a telehealth physical therapy appointment, but if you are looking to get the most out of it, there are some more tips that can help. We want everyone to get the most out of their physical therapy telehealth appointments, so we’re including some recommendations below on what you can do to take your appointment to the next level:
Tips for getting the most out of your physical therapy telehealth appointment
- Drink plenty of water — Your physical therapy routine will likely include exercises, stretches and movements that challenge your body within your limits. You need to drink water and stay hydrated so that your body can be as prepared as possible for any of the demands of your treatment.
- Keep a pen and notebook handy — Your physical therapist may make suggestions or recommendations throughout your treatment. By keeping a pen and notebook handy, you can take notes immediately rather than trying to remember them and write them down after your treatment.
- Prepare questions in advance — Another reason you may want a pen and notebook around is to prepare some notes and questions in advance. Write down anything you think might be important to mention in regard to your condition and needs. Write questions you may have about your condition and treatment.
- Stay diligent with your treatment — Your physical therapist may recommend exercises and stretches to perform in between appointments. It is important to take these as seriously as your appointment itself in order to progress as your physical therapist has planned.
