Tips for Success in Rehab 

AnMed Health therapists want to see every patient reach their highest level of independence. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your rehabilitation experience:

  • Follow your physician’s instructions – Schedule therapy appointments as often as your doctor says to, and be sure to attend every appointment. 

  • Dress for success – Any time you’re exercising, wear non-skid shoes and clothes you can move comfortably in. 

  • Focus on the task at hand – Make the most of your therapy time by giving the exercises your full attention. This is your time. 

  • Do your homework – Often, therapists will prescribe exercises for you to do at home. It’s up to you to follow through. 

  • Stick to it – Don’t give up if healing isn’t happening as fast as you’d like. Talk to your therapist about your concerns and remember that recovery takes time.
