If you are dealing with pain and/or injury that is limiting you from being able to do what you want or need to do, physical therapy may be a good option for you. Most people however, do not know what physical therapy entails and how to recognize if they are matched with the right therapist and/or receiving good care. In addition, many people have already “tried” physical therapy and may or may not have had a good experience.
In this article, I would like to share with you some information about what you should expect from going to physical therapy as well as what you should NOT accept from therapy.
What to Expect:
It is my hope that any experience you have with a health practitioner is a good one. However, if you do not feel like you are getting the experience you deserve based on these tips, it is your right to look elsewhere for your care. Despite what your physician may tell you, you have a choice as to where you receive receive you physical hterapy treatment. Physician's that work in health systems are pressured to keep their referral "in-house." You still have the right to request to go somewhere outside the system if you feel like it would suit you better or if the treatment you are receiving is not what you expect and/or not helping.
