Five Steps for Finding Physical Therapy in St. Peters, MO


If you’ve been suffering from pain, loss of strength and loss of flexibility, you may be thinking of visiting a physical therapist for treatment. Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who can help you reduce your pain and regain strength and mobility lost from an injury or medical condition. 

Finding the right physical therapist is an important decision since they’re so vital to your successful recovery. At Excel Physical Therapy on Mexico Road in St. Peters, Missouri, we want you to be equipped to make the right decision. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five steps you can follow for finding the best physical therapist for you. 

Five steps for finding a physical therapist

A good physical therapist should provide personal and attentive care and treatment. Here are five steps you can follow to find a clinic with physical therapists who will provide excellent care for you:

  1. Review their credibility — All physical therapists are expected to have years of training and education before being allowed to practice. They must attain a bachelor’s degree and then complete a physical therapy graduate degree program. Afterward, they must pass a nationally recognized certification exam.
  2. Review their patient skills — Make sure the staff at the clinic are friendly and supportive. If the first clinic you visit has cold and unwelcoming staff, you should find another clinic where the staff will care about you. 
  3. Review their facility — Physical therapy clinics should have clean and working equipment that can be used as part of your treatment. Ask about specialized services too, like aquatic therapy.
  4. Read their reviews — The internet makes it easy for you to hear the unfiltered thoughts of other patients. If many have left positive reviews about the clinic, you can expect a positive experience too.
  5. Ask about insurance — If you would like to pay for physical therapy with insurance, ask the staff or your insurance provider if your plan provides coverage for physical therapy services.
