  1. Not doing enough research: It’s important to research different physical therapists and their qualifications, as well as read reviews from previous patients to get a sense of their experience and effectiveness.
  2. Not considering location: It’s important to choose a physical therapist that is conveniently located so that it’s easy to attend appointments.
  3. Not discussing treatment plans and goals: Make sure to have a discussion with the physical therapist about your treatment goals and expectations. It’s important to have a clear understanding of the treatment plan and what you can expect from the therapy.
  4. Not considering the therapist’s expertise: It’s important to choose a physical therapist who has experience and expertise in treating the specific condition you are seeking treatment for.
  5. Not paying attention to the therapist’s personality: It’s important to choose a physical therapist that you feel comfortable with and can develop a good working relationship with. It’s easier to commit to a treatment plan and follow through with therapy if you have a good rapport with your therapist. http://wwww.totalathletesportsmed.com
