Three Easy Pieces
Patients who recover share common features Each brings with them a unique set of circumstances that may
aid or complicate efforts of recovery, yet when these three elements are managed, and they interact effectively,
recovery is maximized. So what is important?
Successful outcomes depend first and foremost on you. You must embrace the attitude that you want healthy
change to occur. If you do not, no amount of skill in your therapist can overcome your attitude. You must want
to improve. If you understand this first, the rest is easier.
Your time inside and outside of the clinic, money from you and/or your insurer, and your commitment to
doing the work necessary will help you improve. Most of the time this involves simply setting aside time
during your day to work on recovery. It involves the physical components of physical therapy, and often
modification of your lifestyle. It will also include, when necessary, work on your own mental toughness to
overcome fear, anxiety, or inadequate understanding of what is necessary to heal your problem.
In general, chronic problems take longer to treat than acute problems. They also require utilization of
more resources. Accompanying medical conditions and lifestyle can influence the rate and quality of your
recovery as well.

interactions and no recovery in an unbalanced model. Few resources combined
with inadequate attitude, plus the large nature of the problem spells
Better managed of elements of the therapeutic relationships with some
effective interactions producing some measurable recovery.
Optimized management of elements of the therapeutic relationships with
effective interactions yielding a much greater recovery.
