Campus Commons PT - January 2019


Seeing a physical therapist can be a stressful experience for many people. The pain from the ailment, the complex range of emotions, and the logistical hurdles of traveling back and forth can be cumbersome for those who struggle with injuries. In the midst of running through all the variables, one common struggle patients encounter is figuring out what to wear. It might sound frivolous, but for those who lack the appropriate apparel, it’s one more issue they have to worry about. We encounter many patients who do not have athletic clothing, and this can be a significant stressor for them. While it certainly helps, it’s not a requirement for you to wear athletic attire in order for treatment to be effective. We don’t want you to feel like you’re NEW YEAR’S CHECK-IN IT’S THE NEW YEAR, AND MOST PEOPLE ARE MAKING RESOLUTIONS TO FEEL YOUNGER, LIVE HEALTHIER, AND GET BACK TO NORMAL LIVING. AND I WANT TO HELP YOU. I BLOCKED OUT 10 APPOINTMENT SPOTS FOR “NEW YEAR’S CHECK-INS.” THE PURPOSE OF THE APPOINTMENT IS TO TEST YOUR STRENGTH AND HOWWELL YOU MOVE, THEN PROVIDE YOU WITH A WRITTEN COPY OF: 1.

dressed for a date when you come in for your first session. Loose-fitting sweatpants, T-shirts, or other articles of clothing that allow easy movement will work just fine. Make sure your clothes allow the therapist to address the injured area. For example, if you have a shoulder injury, wearing a tank top is a great choice. If it’s a knee injury, then you’ll want to wear shorts. The proper attire will allow for more effective treatments. Of course, if you’re worried about specifics, you can always call our practice and speak to a therapist. We are happy to help you feel confident during your recovery and beyond.
