One Simple Graphic That Could Save You A Lot Of Time, $$$ And Headaches Getting Physical Therapy Treatments
A little addition to my last post showing the old way to practice healthcare...the one that gets both patients and practitioners frustrated, that is full of red tapes from insurance companies. A physical therapist will refer you to the appropriate healthcare practitioner as they are trained to recognize medical emergencies or anything that is outside of their scope of practice. For so many other things (let's say back pain for example, and really any musculoskeletal pain...) though, seeing a PT first is your best bet to learn what to do and start actively working on the problem...which is key if you're interested in a faster recovery.
Pierre-Yves Butheau, MPT, CMP has been a physiotherapist for 19 years and has a passion for helping people move better, return from and prevent injuries, as well as improve their function and quality of life. He has a strong interest in addressing the root cause of and treating neuro-musculoskeletal conditions while educating his patients with the knowledge to manage their conditions and prevent recurrence. Pierre also has a niche in treating Bell's palsy and temporomandibular joint dysfunctions.
