In physical therapy, as with any form of treatment, the patient and care provider need to have a strong relationship. If you and your provider cannot communicate effectively, or have other difficulties, it will be tough to work towards an effective treatment plan. In this article, we will talk about how to change physical therapists if you are unsatisfied with the care you are receiving.
Changing Physical Therapists
The relationship between patient and physical therapist is important to successful treatment. You need to feel comfortable with your therapist, and be able to communicate effectively. Sometimes, for whatever reason, patients do not get along or communicate well with their physical therapist. This may be the result of clashing personalities, lack of communication, or other factors. Whatever the reason, it’s important to take action if you are unhappy with your care.
Many patients are hesitant to leave their current physical therapist because they don’t want to offend or hurt the feelings of their therapist. Ultimately, the most important thing is that you are getting the best possible care. If you feel that you aren’t receiving that from your current rehabilitation specialist, it’s time to find someone else.
