What to Look for In a Physical Therapist in St. Peters, MO

South St. Peters MO Physical Therapy

You may be looking for treatment if you’re suffering from an injury or medical condition that is causing you pain and affecting your ability to do anything. One expert you can trust in helping you reduce pain and restore your strength and flexibility is a physical therapist.

Physical therapists are skilled professionals who focus on treating the muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones and joints to help reduce pain. If you’re thinking of contacting a physical therapist for treatment, it’s important to do some research and find the one that’s best for you. 

Excel Sports & Physical Therapy wants to make this easier for you with this list of five qualities to look for when researching physical therapists near you. 

Five qualities to look for in your physical therapist clinic

  1. Education — Physical therapists must undergo years of training and education before being allowed to practice. They must have a bachelor’s degree, complete a physical therapy graduate degree program and attain nationally recognized certification.
  2. Good patient skills — The team at the clinic you’re interested in should be kind and caring. If you visit a clinic and the staff is not friendly, it’s time to find another clinic. You will likely need more than one treatment session to feel better again, so you don’t want to be stuck in an unfriendly place.  
  3. Good facility — Clinics should have functioning and up-to-date equipment and facilities. You should also look for specialized equipment for services like aquatic therapy if you’re interested. 
  4. Positive reviews — These days, many patients leave reviews online for others like you to read. If the reviews of the clinic you’re looking at are positive, then you can probably expect a similar experience.
  5. Insurance cooperation — Ask the staff at the clinic or your insurance provider if your insurance will help pay for your physical therapy treatment.
