Why Therapy Is Important

At CWJR, we work with patients who have various neurological and orthopedic conditions. Therapy has many benefits to both physical and emotional health. Read more about it below.

The repercussions of lack of therapy is not only physical. Studies show individuals who have disruptions in therapy also suffer from some of the following:

  • Lack of Self-esteem among peers
  • Decreased Social Skills
  • Decreased Social Acceptance among peers
  • Increased Isolation
  • Overall, a greater Dependence on others to meet/achieve daily needs!

Over the past few weeks, many people have had disriptions in their plans of care. However, CWJR is so excited to welcome our patients back into our clinic. Returning to therapy has many benefits including:

  • Increasing Lifespan
  • Increasing Communication Skills
  • Increasing Physical Mobility
  • Increased Strength/Coordination
  • Increasing Positive Interaction Among Peers and in the Community
  • Decreased Risks of Falls
  • Decreased Stress, Anxiety, and Fear
  • Overall, Greater Functional Independence throughout your daily routine!

We hope you and your families continue to stay safe and healthy during this time. Your team at CWJR cannot wait to see you soon!
