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. 

Physical therapy is an effective way to treat and manage various medical conditions, including arthritis, joint disorders, neurological problems, and injuries. 

The most common question during the first meeting with the therapist is how long the physical therapy sessions take?

There is no one-fits-all answer as the treatment duration and sessions depending on the particular condition, treatment plan, and progress.

Each patient will have a thorough diagnosis and evaluation, and the physical therapist will create a program to suit their needs. 

Physical Therapy Health Insurance

Almost every day, our patients are asking us — does insurance cover physical therapy? 

This is a question that needs a closer look as there isn't one straightforward answer. 

Physical therapy (PT) is imperative for various rehabilitation and recovery programs. It sometimes is necessary to help you recover from an injury, post-surgery, or help treat an existing condition.

One or two sessions will not suffice to achieve long-lasting results, so insurance coverage becomes vital when paying the fees and other expenses. No one should get in debt to recover from a health problem, as it should be a priority for any human being.

Let's explore the subject of PT insurance in detail. 

One of the first questions most patients ask us is — is physical therapy painful? 

That's a great question as physical therapy is often used after traumatic events or certain painful health conditions. Nobody wants to add any more pain to that. 

The simple answer is no, but it doesn't mean that you will not feel any discomfort or soreness. 

After all, physical therapy deals with recovery from injuries or surgeries, and, therefore, it’s normal that, initially, you will feel distressed in the areas more affected.

Let's dive deeper into the topic of pain after physical therapy (PT), what's normal, and what should be addressed right away.
