How to Get the Most Out of Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an effective way for a person to recover from an injury and restore themselves to the same physical condition they were in before the injury. Physical therapy is a treatment method used for a variety of injuries and illnesses. Treatment may include massage, heat packs, cold packs, and exercise.

It is best to approach physical therapy with a positive attitude. A physical therapist will work with you to create a plan for therapy. Setting goals, both long-term and short-term, will help increase your motivation. Be realistic about whether your goals are achievable, and about how long it will take to reach each goal.

If your injury occurred in the course of employment, you may be entitled to Pennsylvania workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is available to eligible workers regardless of whether they caused the injury themselves or their employer was at fault. A Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyer may be able to help determine what your case is worth. Contact the Calhoon and Kaminsky P.C., at 717-695-4722 or 877-291-WORK (9675).
