One of the most common questions that clients ask is “How many physio sessions will i need?” Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Physiotherapy is an essential part of the recovery process for many injuries and post-operative protocols. The number of physiotherapy sessions required will depend on the nature and severity of your injury, as well as your individual needs and goals. In some cases, an intensive burst of appointments may be necessary, with three sessions per week being recommended. However, as your treatment progresses and you begin to recover, the frequency of your appointments will likely decrease.
Physiotherapy treatments can help reduce pain, improve the movement in your joints, and improve strength, mobility, balance, stability and power.
Your physiotherapist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that takes into account your specific needs and goals. This may include a course of treatment that is designed to help you fully recover from your injury and prevent future injuries from occurring. The recovery for someone wishing to return to walking 30 minutes will look very different to someone wishing to return to marathon running. For example, if a client suffers a serious injury, with multiple injured areas, requiring surgery then their recovery may take many months. Typically, those undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction surgery will require 18-25 sessions of treatment over a period of a year. Meanwhile, those who wake up with an acute torticollis/wry neck may only require a few sessions before they are symptom-free.
It is important to remember that physiotherapy is not a one-time fix. While it can be incredibly effective in helping you recover from an injury, it is also important to continue to work on your strength and mobility even after your treatment is complete. Your physiotherapist can provide you with exercises and strategies to help you maintain the progress you have made and prevent future injuries. Our goal is to help you feel better, and stay better!
In conclusion, the number of physiotherapy sessions required will depend on a variety of factors. While there is no formula for determining exactly how many sessions you will need, your physiotherapist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that is designed to help you achieve your goals and fully recover from your injury. Remember that physiotherapy is not a one-time fix, but rather an ongoing process that requires dedication and commitment to achieve the best results.
