Choosing the Right Physical Therapist For You

Physical therapy is an effective way to promote wellbeing and improve function by offering holistic treatment. Backed by evidence-based research, a program of physical therapy can make a real difference to the lives of patients.

However, with so many physical therapists offering their services in the market, how can you pick the provider that’s right for you? There are some key points to look for in any physical therapist and below we’re going to describe exactly what these are.

 

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

When physical therapists have been offering treatment for some time, they can become rather fixed and rigid in their approach. This means offering standard treatments for different individuals, regardless of the fact that there may be differences in the underlying cause or the functionality of the patient.

It’s essential to have a customized treatment plan in order to get the very possible results in the shortest time. A preplanned treatment program simply won’t deliver the same quality of results, leaving patients undergoing therapy for longer than necessary and receiving substandard outcomes.

Here at RPI Therapy we believe that each individual is exactly that: an individual. That means developing a treatment plan created specifically for them which takes into account all of their needs.

 

Convenience

While this shouldn’t be the only criteria you consider, convenience is a major asset in a physical therapist. You should never settle for treatment with someone who you’re not fully satisfied with just because they’re local. However, with lots of physical therapists around, it should be possible to find someone that is convenient for you.

It may not seem too much trouble to travel for a one-off appointment but when you’re having a program of treatments, constantly having to trek across town can quickly become a nuisance. The issue can be exacerbated if the opening hours don’t meet with your requirements too. Having to leave work early or rush to squeeze in a treatment isn’t conducive to the right state of mind.

The good news if that RPI Therapy have multiple locations all around the St Louis area with convenient opening hours. Check our website to find the clinic that’s closest to you for hassle-free treatment that fits in with your lifestyle.

 

Do Your Homework

It’s important to be certain when you’re choosing your physical therapist but reading the website isn’t sufficient to be sure you’re getting the real deal. Before starting a treatment program, take a little time to do your research and you’ll end up with a physical therapist that is as genuine and high-quality as they seem.

One easy way to do this is to check out the reviews from past patients. Hearing real-life testimonials from other people is a great way to assure yourself that you’ll be getting the kind of physical therapist you want.

RPI Therapy is happy to provide testimonials from other patients so you can make an appointment for treatment with complete peace of mind.
