New Year’s Resolutions From Your Physiotherapist

Your physiotherapist’s goal is to ensure that you get the most out of your sessions and give you the tools necessary to continue your recovery at home. You’ve probably made New Year’s resolutions to better your life and your physiotherapist is no exception. They want you to fully recover and to do so, here are five New Year’s resolutions a physiotherapist makes to help you get back to being you:

  1. Help You Destress
    Stress plagues us all, especially in the first few months of the year. Winter can be tough, as the weather keeps us indoors and zaps us of our motivation. When you visit your physiotherapy clinic, your therapist will help you destress. We all worry but, with the help of your physiotherapist, you can harness that stress and get rid of it.

  2. Create Realistic Goals
    Whatever your goals are, your physiotherapist will ensure that you meet them in a realistic way. Whether your goal is to quit smoking, exercise more, or eat less sugary foods, your physiotherapist will help you reach those goals in a way that makes sense for your lifestyle.

  3. Get You In Top Shape
    No, your physiotherapist isn’t going to work you to the bone. Instead they are going to do what works for your body when you’re at the physiotherapy clinic. Everyone is built differently and what works for one patient isn’t going to work for another. Your physiotherapist takes that into consideration and will get you back in top shape based on your body type.

  4. Teach You Better Eating Habits
    Most of us resolve to eat better in the new year, especially after indulging over the holidays. Your physiotherapist helps you reach your health goals by teaching you better eating habits. You won’t be put on a restrictive diet but your physiotherapist will come up with an eating plan that works for your lifestyle.

  5. Give You The Tools To Deal With Setback
    We’re all human and there’s always a chance we’ll make mistakes during our recovery. Your physiotherapist is human too, which is why they’ll be happy to give you the tools to deal with setbacks. For example, you may be working your hardest when you visit the physiotherapy clinic but neglect an at-home workout session or have a cigarette even though you’re trying to quit. Setbacks happen but your physiotherapist will make sure you can deal with them in a positive way instead of getting down on yourself.

The primary role of your physiotherapist is to get you back on your feet following an accident. However, they do so much more when you visit their physiotherapy clinic. Please contact us for more information or to make an appointment.
