A lot of people aren’t very familiar with a physical therapy routine performed with a certified physical therapist, so they aren’t always sure what they should be looking for or the signs of a problem with their therapy regimen. Most physical therapists are very good at what they do, but sometimes it’s clear that heading in a different direction with your rehabilitation is the best move for you. In today’s blog, we look at a few of those signs that suggest you may want to consider switching to a different physical therapy team.
Every patient should be making progress as time goes on. It may not be obvious and it may not be quick, but you should see progress from appointment to appointment. If you’re not seeing progress and your PT can’t point to any improvements, it may be time to look for another therapist who can help you on your recovery journey.
At OrthoRehab Specialists, we really take the time to get to know our patients because we believe it truly helps in our ability to understand their frustrations, their concerns and their goals. If you’re repeatedly being asked the same generic questions or you feel like you’re just another time slot on their schedule, consider switching to a different physical therapy team.
If you’re showing up for appointments and doing the same stretches and exercises over and over, your physical therapist isn’t working their hardest to help you get better. Performing the same exercises but with more reps or added resistance is one thing, but if it’s the exact same routine over and over, find yourself a physical therapist who will work to challenge you and really help drive muscle and joint improvement.
