Encourage them to do their home exercises as instructed, emphasizing the role doing so plays in both the length and success of their recovery, as you would for any patient. However, patient compliance with the home exercise program is distinct from physical therapist compliance with the treatment protocol. When completing the Physical Therapist Report Form(s) do NOT indicate that the protocol has not been followed due to patient non-compliance. The primary purpose of the Physical Therapist Report Form is to collect information about the rehabilitation program as implemented by the treating physical therapist, not the patient. Patient compliance information is collected separately by us directly from the patient.
