A prescription for Physical Therapy is similar to a prescription for medication...you may use whatever therapy clinic you chose, just as you can use any pharmacy you choose - this is YOUR option.
Most of the population could benefit from Physical Therapy in many ways including improving quality of life, functional mobility, strengthening, flexibility, postural re-education and education regarding each individuals specific condition/injury.
There are many resources at our fingertips, however you must be careful in what resources you use and ensure that they are accurate and up to date.
**Helpful hints with websites: if they DO NOT end in org, gov, they are most likely NOT a reliable website to get information from. (ex. www.nih.gov (National Institutes of Health) This is a good site to check information.)
**If you have questions regarding your medical condition, I encourage you to ask your physician or speak with your physical therapist who may be able to get you the information you need to answer any questions you may have.
