Regardless of where my clients reside-- Australia or Canada, Korea or Hong Kong, the U.K. or the U.S.-- they all have one thing in common. They all want to get better. Rarely does their improvement happen accidentally; they work hard to achieve their goals.
One of my current clients recently commented, “So I guess my improvement isn’t going to be linear.” His observation is accurate. Improvement does not occur at the same rate week after week.
In fact, initially it can be difficult to notice any improvement at all. On other days, pain or function might be a little worse than the day before.
When it’s not clear that you’re improving, it can be tempting to give up.
Knowing how to measure and track improvement is one way to maintain a positive outlook and increase the likelihood of achieving goals.
