3 Tips for Physical Therapy in Phoenix, AZ

Preparing ahead of time is the best way to benefit from physical therapy in Phoenix, AZ. Here are three top tips for physical therapy patients visiting Endurance Rehabilitation in Scottsdale, AZ.

Eat a Balanced, Healthy Diet

Before taking physical therapy, choose to eat a healthy and balanced diet. Avoid drinking too much alcohol, especially if you are taking medication affected by the substance. Eat less salt to help reduce water retention during sweaty sessions.

Bring a List of Your Medications

On the first day of physical therapy at Endurance Rehabilitation, have a list of the prescription medications you are on. Note any over-the-counter drugs, such as pain medication, that you are taking when you start therapy.

This way, your therapist will ensure you are not over-stressed in a way that the medication would jeopardize. For example, if you take medicine for high blood pressure, it is important to disclose this since such medicine indicates you also have a heart condition.

Do Not Miss Therapy

Once you begin physical therapy, you need to maintain therapy sessions. Avoid missing a single treatment; you will benefit most from physical therapy—plan on being on time and ready to give 100 percent at each therapy session. Find a way to complete homework as the physical therapist requires in between sessions. This is the only way to successfully complete physical therapy for its full benefit without injuring yourself.
