If you’re about to embark on a course of physical therapy or are going through it right now, you’ll likely have lots of questions about what to expect. One of the things most patients want to know is how long their physical therapy will take.
Of course, this will depend on many different factors, such as the type of injury or condition you’re being treated for, your current level of fitness, and the commitment you put into the program your therapist prescribes. At JAG PT, the members of our compassionate physical therapy team use their skills and expertise to help you rehabilitate safely and quickly, allowing you to see results fast and get back to your pain-free routine as soon as possible.
Factors that Affect the Timeline for Physical Therapy Improvement
No two physical therapy journeys are the same. There are many considerations to take into account to estimate a rehabilitation timeline. These include:
- The severity of your injury or illness;
- Your current fitness level;
- The rate at which your body heals;
- Your age;
- The commitment you put into your personalized therapy program;
- Your motivation to hit your goals;
- The support and encouragement of people around you;
- Whether you follow a healthy lifestyle.
While you can’t control everything on this list, many of these factors are ones you can influence. Taking the right lifestyle steps will help you to reach your goals.
