When Physical Therapy Ends

There's no need to become a couch potato just because your doctor's prescription for physical therapy has run out.

The American Council on Exercise has suggestions on 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.
  • Find additional programs that allow you to continue strength training and getting back to 100% or more.
