Tips on choosing a Physical Therapist
Here are 5 tips for choosing a physical therapy group that fits your needs.
In order to receive physical therapy in Illinois you must first get a referral from your doctor. You, as a patient, have the option to take that referral to any physical therapy group regardless if the referral has a particular physical therapy group's information on the top. It is great to know all the options you have when it comes to physical therapy.
1. Ask your friends, family or co-workers about their experience with a physical therapy group.
2. Review the physical therapy group's website. Does the website have information on the various physical therapists?
4. Is the physical therapy clinic close to your home or work? If it is too far out of your way, it may make it difficult to get to your appointments.
5. Are the front desk personnel helpful and friendly? Give the clinic a call and have a few questions handy such as: will I have the same clinician each visit or will I know my physical therapy benefits prior to my first visit? Will my physical therapy sessions be one-on-one with my physical therapist or will they have other patients during my visit?
