What Is One-On-One Physical Therapy

For years many health centers and clinics offered group physical therapy sessions as a standard for patient care.

During such sessions, two or more patients are treated by one therapist who splits their time between them. It means that the individual patient gets only a tiny fraction of the therapist's time. 

It clearly isn't the optimal approach for the best results. Fortunately, this model is becoming less popular these days, and more clinics now focus on one-on-one physical therapy, which is more patient-focused.

One-on-one physical therapy session offers the best individual care and attention as well as many other benefits. 

Let's dive deeper into one-on-one physical therapy and its benefits.

Is crossing legs bad

You've probably heard that sitting with legs crossed at the knees might be harmful to your health. But it's a habit most people have, and it's a tough one to kick whether you're working at your desk, dining at a restaurant or waiting in a waiting room. 

In addition to that, we generally sit much more in this modern age, with fewer people working physical jobs and choosing sedentary work. Some people sit up to 8-10 hours a day (or more!)

Many women have also probably heard their teachers or grandmothers scold them for sitting with legs crossed, and this etiquette rule may have come from the potential negative side effects for health.

Feeling confused, many patients ask their doctors and physical therapists if that's all true. You can check other frequent questions that patients make to their therapists here.

Anyway, we've put together a full guide that answers the question, is crossing your legs bad for you and your health?

Questions to Ask Your Physical Therapist

Physical therapy can help with a myriad of health issues and problems, but it's crucial to pick the best service provider and understand how the process will work to get the most of it. 

The most important thing you can do to ensure the best therapy results is to have an open dialogue with your potential or current physical therapist. Only proper communication can give you all the information you need and help the therapist better understand your situation. 

Asking questions gives you the ability to explain your issues to your therapist, understand the treatment steps, intricacies, and how you can contribute to your healing. 

Here are 10 important questions to ask your physical therapist during your first appointment. 

If you're experiencing joint pain in the knees, ankles, hips, back, or elbows, there's a high chance you have arthritis. Arthritis is one of the leading causes of joint pain in the world.

One of the common misconceptions about arthritis is that it's just an older person's problem. However, it can affect anyone - even very young people or children. 

Physical therapy for arthritis is one of the few ways to approach treatment and pain management. It's often the most sustainable too.
