There is one major trait that is shared among the most successful patients in physical therapy, and that is consistency. The human body has an amazing ability to adapt. However, it will not adapt without something encouraging it to make a change on a consistent basis. That means that there’s no quick fix when it comes to conservative healthcare. It does not matter how heavy a patient lifts in a week or how perfect their form was that one session if there is no consistency.
When undergoing a rehabilitation journey, one must set their goals at the forefront of their mind. They must remember these goals every time they tell themselves that today is too busy to perform the home exercise program or to schedule that appointment. Success in physical therapy, fitness, and wellness practices is a series of short-term struggles for long-term gains. As long as you stay moving forward on your journey, amazing things will be waiting for you at your destination.
