“I have tried something like this and it didn’t work.”
September 17, 2021
Not all PT is created equal. Some questions to ask if you have been through PT before:
- Did you work with a licensed PT professional? Unfortunately, a lot of places use athletic trainers or unlicensed aides/techs to provide majority of treatment. This results in suboptimal outcomes.
- Did they address your symptoms or determine the root cause of your problem?
- Did they work with you 1-on-1 or were they also juggling other patients at the same time?
- Did the PT have advanced training specifically in orthopedics and applied functional science? These are categories that PTs can further “specialize” in that often translates to better outcomes in care.
New Life PT only schedules 1-on-1 care with licensed Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants, with no aides or techs. More than 50% of our therapists are board certified orthopedic clinical specialists, a designation that on average only 4% of PTs nation-wide obtain. All of our therapists have advanced training in applied functional science.
