Can I go to any Physical Therapy clinic?

In all states, you can choose any physical therapist that meets your needs.

How do I choose a Physical Therapy clinic?

Here are things for you to consider when choosing a physical therapy clinic:
  • The therapist should have a current license in the state.
  • During your first visit, you should be asked for a thorough medical history and physical examination should be performed before any treatment.
  • Your goals should be communicated to and understood by the therapist.
  • The therapist should explain any modalities they may use in your care, such as hands-on techniques, soft tissue work, therapeutic exercises, heat/cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and manipulation.
  • You should have a clear understanding of how they take payment and what plans are offered.
  • Ensure their hours of operation fit your schedule and if they have opportunities for virtual care.
  • Google them! Read their reviews on Yelp. See what others have to say about their experiences.
  • Ask if they offer a consultation or opportunity to speak with the physical therapist 1st before you commit to a plan of care.
  • Not all physical therapy is the same. If you’ve tried physical therapy and “it didn’t work” that doesn’t mean physical therapy doesn’t work, it means you haven’t found the right therapist. It is within your rights to ask for a different therapist or continue your therapy at another clinic who meets your needs.
