When you find a physical therapist that you like and work well with, you probably want to keep seeing them over time. The longer you work with a physical therapist, the better they will understand your situation and you as a person, thus strengthening the patient / provider relationship. However, sometimes physical therapists move or retire. What should you do if this happens to a physical therapist you’re seeing? In this article we are going to talk about what to do if you’re no longer able to see your physical therapist.
When You Can’t See Your PT Anymore
There are many reasons why you may not be able to see your physical therapist any longer. Perhaps they have retired, or moved to another state. Whatever the case, it’s important to find another therapist quickly to ensure there is no gap in your care.
If your physical therapist moves to another clinic, retires, or is otherwise unavailable to continue providing care to you as before, you have several options. If your PT is retiring, they will likely refer you to a trusted colleague for continued care. If your PT is moving to a different clinic – check to see where exactly they’re moving. It’s possible they are moving to another clinic in the area. If so, you may still be able to see them. If you can’t continue to see your PT for any reason and they have not referred you to a colleague, take to the internet and start researching other physical therapists or clinics in your area.
