Choose a Good Physical Therapist
Selecting the right physical therapist can be a daunting task, but don't be discouraged. We have put together our tips for you in what we recommend you look for. These tips come from our experience as physical therapists, healthcare clinic owners, and patients of other medical specialties. First and foremost, you should know that it's perfectly OK to call and ask a practice these questions. Second, if you ask a healthcare provider about his or her credentials and the provider is offended, that's probably a big red flag that you may want to look elsewhere.
