6-Month Follow-up Visit
One of the most important things you can do to stay on track of your health and wellness is to attend follow-up visits with your physical therapist. First and foremost, attending physicals twice a year and being honest with your physical therapist, no matter how you may be feeling, is the best way to treat or avoid certain conditions.
Follow up visits every six months will also help you and your physical therapist keep track of the progress you made in the past. One of the biggest goals of a physical therapist is to make sure that the improvement you make are maintained, rather than just fixed for a short period of time. Six month follow-up visits can make this possible.
If you have recently undergone physical therapy treatments, contact Alta Vista Wellness Center today to set up your six month follow-up visit! You’ll be happy you did!
What else can I gain from a six month follow-up visit?
Everyone desires to be healthier, stronger, and more active. This may sometimes feel difficult to accomplish, due to pain, injuries, or poor diets. Pain increases undesirable chemicals in your body that cause stress, creating a challenge when it comes to exercise. All of this also affects your endocrine system, which regulates your hormones and controls almost everything happening in your body.
By participating in your six month follow-up visits, your physical therapist will be able to better track your health and wellness to determine any changes that may need to be made.
Schedule your follow-up visit today:
Once you have completed your therapy sessions, your therapist will schedule you for our 6 month platinum follow up program to review your continuing home program, follow up on your status and if any, new or old issues that needs further attention. The 6 month follow up visits will also be a way to keep and maintain or improve your fitness or functional level. Think of it as a preventive program that will keep you pain free and maintain you successful status. We can make arrangements to meet with you on determining what equipment may be beneficial (if attending a gym or using home gym), and what exercises would be helpful in your continued recovery.
If you are experiencing any discomfort or symptoms that you would like to address, your six month follow-up visits would be a great time to do so. At Alta Vista Wellness Center, our main goal is to help our patients remain as happy, healthy, and pain-free as possible. With these follow up visits, we can help make sure you always leave your appointments feeling motivated and in charge of your own health!
