If you’ve lost some of your physical functions due to age, injuries, or medical conditions, it’s not the end for you. With appropriate intervention and aid from the right people, you’ll be able to get back on your feet in no time.
UR FIRST Home Health, your provider of home health services in Las Vegas, Nevada, has skilled Physical Therapists that offer physical therapy as an essential part of rehabilitation to help patients resume normal functioning.
To guarantee a higher chance of success, you have to be prepared before you undergo each session. Here are some preparation tips for you:
- Get to know the pain. Describe the pain and assess its source. List them down so that you won’t forget. Ask yourself the things you do that follow pain, and what time of day the pain usually occurs.
- Finish the paperwork ahead of time. Our home health agency in Nevada gives you options on whether to undergo physical therapy at home or in our clinic. If it’s the former, you can skip this step but if it’s the latter, come to our clinic ahead of time so you can fill in some forms, hand out necessary documents like waivers, and the like before your schedule.
- Have a list of your medications and prepare related imaging results. Your PT will assess your medications and your imaging results like x-rays so you need to have them prepared.
- Dress comfortably. Loose clothes are highly recommended so you can easily move around when the PT asks you to shift positions. Skip jewelry too.
Keep in mind these preparation tips to guarantee a successful physical therapy!
