Health Tip: When Physical Therapy Ends
(HealthDay News) -- Don't become a couch potato just because your doctor's prescription for physical therapy has run out.
The American Council on Exercise suggests how to transition from physical therapy to a regular exercise regimen:
Make a commitment to staying physically active and fit; make sure you don't slip into a sedentary lifestyle.
Before the end of your final physical therapy appointment, ask your therapist questions about safe follow-up exercises.
Start off slow and easy, and follow your physical therapist's instructions.
Watch out for warning signs of overdoing it.
