Who needs to see a physical therapist?
Patients with chronic pain due to a chronic condition or injury should consider seeing a physical therapist. Other patients who recently had surgery may already have a referral to see a physical therapist, and they should definitely do so. Specifically, patients may need to see a physical therapist if they have:
- Pain of any kind that has lasted longer than 3 months
- A chronic condition that causes pain, like arthritis
- Pain from an injury that’s recent or old
- Had a recent surgery that requires long-term recovery and rehabilitation
In many of the cases above, physical therapy can be especially effective. Actually, physical therapists and many other professionals believe any patients, no matter their circumstances, can benefit from physical therapy. Physical therapy is focused on managing and relieving pain, chronic conditions, injuries, and disabilities, and preventing any other complications, as well as rehabilitating the patient. Since physical therapy can help with injury prevention too, athletes can benefit from it even if they’re not having any issues or pain.
How often does a patient need to see a physical therapist?
Both the number and frequency of sessions a patient needs depends on the patient’s pain and condition, as well as his or her personal needs. The patient’s progress during therapy is also a factor. Before beginning with treatment, a physical therapist will help the patient develop a treatment plan and recommend a number and frequency of physical therapy sessions. After each session, the therapist will evaluate the patient’s progress, and depending on that progress, recommend fewer or more sessions.
Generally, a patient will need one or two sessions per week for one to two months. Some patients will benefit from annual follow-up appointments while other patients may benefit from occasional appointments throughout the rest of their lives.
Is seeing a physical therapist covered by insurance?
