Many physical therapy clinics have an online reputation. Read Google reviews and look for a clinic with authentic reviews. If a clinic has thirty 5-star reviews but half of them say “great clinic!” and lack substance, chances are they are soliciting every patient for a review and just trying to get their rating up.

- Can you explain to me exactly how each exercise will help me get better?
- This will help you avoid a clinic that gives a laundry list of exercises to each patient and uses a “shotgun” approach.
- What if we try something and it doesn’t work?
- It’s alright to try a select treatment or exercise a couple of times but if you find yourself in a situation where you haven’t gotten results after 2-3 visits and there’s no plan to change course, run for the hills. You know the saying about trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
- What are the goals for treatment?
- Asking your PT to summarize your goals for you can help to give you both clarity on the game-plan and what to expect. Your PT should help you set realistic goals and timeframes for treatment.
