After that injury, we often feel helpless thinking we could never walk again. On some cases, stroke patients have a hard time accepting that they could not function as efficiently as they were before. However, these are just false beliefs that we have developed over time. With the modern technologies that we have today and the skilled therapists readily available for us, recovery is a possibility already.
Schedule an appointment with your therapists and tell them your concerns and fears about your condition. They can give you alternative solutions or they can give you pieces of advice. But there are some things that they will not tell you but we still want you to know.
- In some conditions, we can help treat your conditions
Therapists often times work upon doctor’s order. Patients do not see their therapists unless required by the doctors. But in some health concerns, you can go straight to your therapists first before going to the doctor. This is because some states in the US consider most therapists as people who have an advanced degree so they know some of the health conditions well.
However, at Comfort Care Home Health Care, we still require our patients to have their doctor’s order first before seeing our therapists. We want them to be safe and diagnosed properly so we can provide the right treatment.
- Our recovery programs are not designed to torture you
We often think that all the exercise programs, activities, and even the therapeutic massages that we get from our therapists are made to make our lives more difficult. But actually, they are just helping us recover faster. They are choosing the appropriate exercise programs for your condition. There are times when you think the exercise is easy, they would increase the quantity of the exercise just so you can feel the intensity of it.
Any program advised by your therapists will increase in quantity over time. This is to train your muscles to move around. At first, it will be painful but as you get used to it, you will notice how it will become easier for you to flex and move around again.
- We cannot relieve the pain in a second
Therapists can help us recover after a certain period of time. But do not expect that they can alleviate the pain right then and there. Our therapists follow a certain program and we work with your physician so we can provide the best treatment for you.
So if you can notice that after having a massage or strength training, you still could feel the pain from the damaged area of the body, you should not blame our therapists for it. They are there to help us gradually recover. It does not happen over time.
Your therapists are very efficient when it comes to treating you and your loved ones from injury or stroke. Ask our therapists today on what they can do for you.
