Home Exercise Compliance and Physical Therapy in Denver

Our physical therapists in Denver work with patients during sessions to help strengthen and improve range of motion to various muscle groups. Physical therapy, however, does not end once the session is over. The physical therapists at Cherry Creek Wellness Center stress the importance of keeping track of home fitness goals—exercises prescribed by the physical therapist for the patient to complete at home between physical therapy in Denver sessions.

Home exercise compliance is an integral part of physical therapy which helps each patient further strengthen the affected area, and can improve range of motion progress and ultimately recovery time. Physical therapy exercises to be practiced at home are usually completed in sets of reps per exercise, or one exercise a few times throughout the day. If your physical therapist gives you physical therapy ‘homework’ in between sessions, make sure to adhere to their guidelines on how to best complete each exercise.
