WHYYOU SHOULDN’TWAIT TO GET PHYSICAL THERAPY 3 REASONS WAITING COULD HURT IN THE LONG RUN
Everyone who is doing their part to practice social distancing during the ongoing pandemic should absolutely be commended for their efforts. However, if you are injured and need to see a physical therapist, you should not put off treatment until after the pandemic. While social distancing is important, waiting too long to see a physical therapist about an injury is very risky for a few key reasons.
sometimes, injuries treated early on may heal completely with just physical therapy; waiting may make the injury worse, which may require surgery, a much more expensive treatment.
YOU COULD PUT YOURSELF AT A DISADVANTAGE.
Hopefully, within the next month or so, things will get back to normal, and we’ll all be able to get back to the activities we love. However, that might not be possible for you if you’re still recovering from an injury. We want you to get back out and enjoy life as soon as it’s safe, which is why you should get physical therapy now. As we said before, if you’re sick at all, you should prioritize recovering from your sickness before recovering from a musculoskeletal injury. However, once you know you’re healthy, come into Campus Commons PT, so you can get back to doing what you love as soon as this season of social isolation ends. We are taking all the appropriate precautions to disinfect and sanitize our clinic so you’ll stay safe and healthy.
YOUR INJURY COULD GET WORSE.
Just like you want to treat an open wound before it gets infected, you want to treat a musculoskeletal injury before the muscle tissue around the injury begins to atrophy. Research has shown that muscle atrophy and nerve changes can occur around the injury site just 24 hours after the injury. If you start physical therapy as soon as possible, you’ll minimize the damage and the recovery process will go much faster.
YOU COULD LOSE MONEY IN THE LONG RUN.
Getting a few physical therapy sessions out of the way right after your injury will leave a much smaller dent in your wallet than if you wait until the injury becomes more serious. Not only that but
