As a PT, I often hear people saying they really don't know what physical therapy does, what kind of treatment or techniques a PT use and often even question why their doctor sent them for PT treatments.
To be honest, I think the physical therapy profession has been lackluster in promoting its benefits, at educating the population in regards to when seeking advice from a PT and at marketing themselves as movement specialists and as who should be the primary provider for musculoskeletal problem. For too long we have been considered an ancillary profession to the medical management of millions of patients, have been passive in being "fed" patients "by prescription only" by doctors, who many still have no clue what conditions we help with(once again, our profession fault's).
So without diverging because I could go on and on about the above, the following could help you figure out if physical therapy is something you just consider. This list of questions is far from being exhaustive.
If YOU can relate to any of the following, physical/physiotherapy is the help you've been looking for.
As for anything you value, I encourage you to do your research and find a therapist that will fit your need.
