Five tips for finding a physical therapist

If you’re suffering from a challenging condition and would like help feeling like your old self, you should follow these five tips to find a physical therapist who is best for you:

  1. Inspect their credentials — This is the most important item on the list because all physical therapists should have completed rigorous training before receiving their license to practice. Physical therapists must have at least a bachelor’s degree and then must complete a physical therapy training program.
  2. Examine their patient skills — If you visit a clinic and find the staff to be cold and unfriendly, find someone else. It’s your right to find a health care professional who you feel will best take care of you.
  3. Check out their facility — Ask about the clinic’s equipment and facility. Everything should be up-to-date, clean and working correctly. Some clinics have specialized equipment for certain services like aquatic therapy. If these services are important to you, see if the clinic is equipped to offer them.
  4. Read the reviews — One of the benefits of the internet is it allows people to express their honest opinions in an unfiltered setting. Check the reviews of other clients to see their thoughts on a particular clinic. If the reviews are mostly negative, that’s a sign you should look for another clinic.
  5. Ask about insurance — Talk to the staff or your insurance provider to find out if your insurance covers physical therapy at the clinic you’re checking out.
