Don't buy into "the new normal."
My sister lives out of state, so when she sprained her ankle and needed physical therapy she chose the most convenient location. After a couple of months her ankle might have been a little better, but she had not been able to get back to running and was still having pain while walking.
Her therapist told her, “this may just be your new normal.”
What?!? Since she had not resumed running and was still experiencing pain while walking, I told her she needed to find a new PT. I visited her to assess her ankle and saw that there were some very important pieces to treatment that had not been done. I knew her ankle was not as good as it could be. Within two visits at her new PT, she noticed a significant improvement.
What is worth your drive?
What is worth your drive? In the long run, are you okay sacrificing your ability to be active in exchange for a little bit of convenience?
Unfortunately, people don’t “shop” for PT until after a bad experience. Whether insurance assists in your payment or you are paying out-of-pocket for your PT treatment, there will be a cost – both financial and time. It is important to make sure you are choosing a PT who will make sure your resources are used wisely.
