Sign of a Good Therapist:
They are quick in determining your needs, teach you self-care tips and bring fast results.
FASTER IS BETTER
A good therapist will listen, understand and be quick in determining your needs. They will offer treatment that bring immediate results and is more skilled and experienced than the one who may spend a lot of one-on-one time with you but doesn’t deliver.
Unless you have an unusual, complex condition a good physical therapist will bring fast improvement.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Be prepared to undergo a complete physical exam on your first visit. It may take between 45-60 minutes for the entire visit.
Be wary of the facility where you don’t
Learn something new at each and every visit. Self-care and home exercise instruction are essentials for fast results. Don’t waste time in your therapy visits and run out of insurance benefits before your goals are met.
WHAT TO WEAR
You’ll need to expose the body part that is effected (knee, shoulder, back, etc.). Loose fitting apparel such as sweats and t-shirt are ideal, otherwise you may have to use a gown.
