How to find a suitable physiotherapist
#Physiotherapy


Rehabilitation is a crucial element on your way to recovering from an injury or surgery and getting you back to how you were before. There are a vast number of professionals claiming expertise in the domain of physical rehabilitation. However, the best trained and most qualified of those is a Physiotherapist. Deciding on a Physiotherapist can be challenging, if you’ve never done it before and don’t really know what to look for.

Do your research
Different outpatient clinics offer various kinds of specialization, such as sports medicine, back and/or neck strain and joint replacement. Their Physiotherapist may offer special skills and additional areas of certification, ranging from paediatric care to geriatric patient therapy. Call and visit as many clinics as you can, to get as much information as necessary for you to make an informed decision.
Choose a Physiotherapist that you get along with
Physical therapy is a partnership that involves constant dialogue between therapist and patient. It’s imperative to work with someone that you have a good rapport with, and someone you feel comfortable with. As a patient, you’re also responsible for your healing process, and your chances for a full recovery will be greater if you have a strong and trustful working relationship with your therapist, and be able to follow their advice. Open and honest communication is key.
Your Physiotherapist should have great manual skills
The best physiotherapists use their hands to mobilize, catalyze and improve functions that can not be achieved by stretching or strengthening alone. Such hands on skills help scar tissue to heal more efficiently and to relieve areas of inflammation and pain. Powerful, gentle hands are the best combination.
Insurance
If health insurance is an important consideration for you, make sure that your physical therapist's clinic is part of your insurance program and business.You're not supposed to pay more than you have to in order to receive treatment from a physical therapist.
