In addition to the treatments discussed above, sometimes lifestyle interventions are key for physical therapy success. This might include improving sleep hygiene, monitoring stress management, improving nutrition and/or improving recreational fitness. For example, patients who get less sleep are more likely to have increased and longer-lasting pain. This can be frustrating, especially for someone who cannot sleep because of his or her pain. In this example, we will discuss everything from your sleeping positions to your daily routine to see if there are any adjustments we can make to allow you to sleep with greater ease.
