She just wants you to keep coming. If you don't come, they don't get paid for your visit. I believe it's a monetary thing. I never went to PT. My OS gave me a prescription for it and I just threw it away. What I did to recover was to do my own ADL, (activities of daily living). I took care of my house, yard, cats, and me, that's all. I recovered quite well without the awful pain, emotionally, mentally, and physically, without formal PT.They said if I did nothing that I wouldn’t get my rom back. Is that true. I’ve seen people on here getting their rom back without pt.
Not everyone recovers from joint surgery as I do. You have to do what works best for you! For me, I go for less pain with the same or even better results.
