How to Choose the Right Physical Therapist
Choosing a physical therapist can be an intimidating task. The first step is to develop a list of potential candidates. Most health insurance plans cover part or all of your physical therapy costs. Once you have a short list, it’s time to make some calls and schedule consultations with each candidate. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a physical therapist location, hours, availability and cost.
Benefits of a Regular Workout Routine
Research shows that a consistent workout routine can reduce your stress levels, improve your mood, and help you sleep better. It can also burn calories while toning up your muscles and all of these health benefits could help keep diseases at bay. Make an appointment with a physical therapist to discuss what kind of workout routines would best meet your needs. And always let us know if there’s anything we can do to make you more comfortable. When you’re healthy and happy, our work here is done!
When a patient begins physical therapy, they often have no idea what’s ahead of them. These patients know their doctors have recommended it, but they don’t know why or how it will help. Our therapists are trained to explain rehabilitation in terms that make sense to you and discuss what your role will be in regaining your strength, flexibility and range of motion. We explain exercises that we suggest you do at home with step-by-step instructions on how to do them correctly and safely.
